Increase in wheat prices
One of the tandoor owner said that the price of 50 kg flour bag was 8000 but last week it increased to Rs.10000 and suddenly got up to Rs.13500 by flour mills. We are forced to increase prices of Roti and Naan to overcome our money crises.
Government should pay attention to this issue and direct flour mill owners to decrease the price of flour immediately.

One of the government employee said that it is difficult for us to buy 10 Naans for Rs.300 per meal.
