With Ramazan commencing in less than two months, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has announced a Rs5 billion-package for the holy month, reported Radio Pakistan on Sunday. 

Speaking in Lahore, the chief minister said that that wheat flour would be available to the public at cheaper rates as part of the Ramazan package.

In addition,  360 bazaars will be established across the province.

In 2013, the government had unveiled a Rs2 billion Ramazan relief package, through which 13 essential items were sold on subsidised rates and 1,500 items on reduced rates through Utility Stores.
