LAHORE: The government will take action against sugar mill owners not timely paying sugarcane price to farmers.

This was stated by Adviser to Prime Minister Aun Chaudhry while talking to the media during his visit to Nankana Sahib on Sunday. He vowed that the government would not succumb to any political pressure in this regard. He said the PM had already issued directions to take strict action against the sugar mill owners not paying timely price to farmers and also involved in using underweight scales.
