ISLAMABAD:

The All Pakistan Sugar Mills Association (APSMA) has termed the measures taken against the rise in sugar prices a campaign against the country’s second largest industry.

The Sugar Mills Association on Tuesday rejected the government’s moves with regard to controlling the rise in sugar prices and demanded that the government should allow unfettered trade of sugar in the country as allowed under the Constitution.

The APSMA has written a letter to the premier in which it asked for an appointment with him, lamenting that his office did not give them a chance to explain their position.

“We want to inform you about the campaign against the second largest industry in the country, in which facts are being distorted. An organized campaign is being launched to discredit the sugar industry of Pakistan.”
