President Nanbai Association Shafiq Qureshi said that they are ready to reduce the price of bread if the Punjab government gives a subsidy. However, associations across the province rejected the decision of the Punjab government.

Talking about the decision to reduce the price of roti, Shafiq Qureshi said that the price of a bag of fine flour is 12 thousand 200 rupees while the price of ordinary flour is 11 thousand 600 rupees per bag, pointing out that fhe government is not giving any subsidy on gas and electricity. Nanbais use LPG gas which makes it impossible to reduce the price of bread.
