Today two press conferences were going on.

Shahbaz gill was saying that sindh didnt begin crushing in october.

Whereas murtaza wahab on the other side was saying that crushing season only begins on 15th of november. No mill in punjab or kpk is crushing at the moment.

The government can't be blaming this crushing season bullshit on sindh government.

Crushing starts early in Sindh. PPP deliberately delayed it to do blame price hike on PTI. Anti Pakistan party as usual

Crushing starts one month prior to Punjab in Sindh. At least from the last 20 years.

Farmers bring Trolleys full of Sugarcane and park them on the road outside the mills, that is because the Sugar Mills intentionally make them wait for days, for two reasons.

1) Sugarcane gets dry and loses weight.
2) The wait makes Sugarcane get sweeter. (This I heard from an Agriculture Specialist on a TV program.)

Also, late crushing leads to a shortage and increase in demand for sugar and the mafia manipulates the prices.

Why government issue NOC’s for sugar mills to only elite? Government should ease the process of establishing sugar mills and especially mini sugar mills locally to break the monopoly of sugar mafia. Or import sugar on time. I can’t understand why they don’t try to find a proper solution instead of moaning every year
