On the direction of Chief Minister, Hamza Shehbaz, a consultative meeting was held under the chairmanship of PML-N MPA Bilal Yasin at Chief Minister Office on Wednesday. A delegation led by Chairman Pakistan Poultry Association, Dr Sajjad Arshad attended the meeting. Pakistan Poultry Association assured cooperation on the occasion for reduction of chicken meat prices.

Addressing the meeting, Bilal Yaseen said that all available resources will be used to provide relief to the common man. The role of middlemen will be limited to reduce the gap between the wholesale and retail prices, he added. Issues facing the poultry sector were also discussed during the meeting.

Chairman Poultry Association informed the participants of the meeting that the prices of chicken meat have been declining for the last two-three days and it will come down further. “We are committed to provide chicken meat to the people at reasonable prices”, he said.

Members of Punjab Assembly Ramzan Siddique Bhatti, Sardar Owais Leghari, Chaudhry Muhammad Iqbal, Secretary Industries and Commerce Dr Ahmed Javed Qazi, Additional Secretary Livestock and concerned officers attended the meeting.

In this connection deputy commissioners of all districts across the province chaired the meetings of District Price Control Committees. District administration directed the shopkeepers to sell edibles at fixed government rates.

On the direction of CM, deputy commissioners across Punjab summoned the representatives of ghee, poultry and Karyana merchant association and made it clear that price-hike will not be tolerated and permitted at any cost.
