LAHORE: Punjab Chief Secretary Yousaf Naseem Khokhar has directed the deputy commissioners to ensure availability of sufficient quantity of wheat flour and sugar in Ramzan bazaars, besides addressing complaints of consumers on a priority basis.

He issued these directions to the DCs while chairing a video-link meeting here on Saturday. The meeting reviewed the arrangements made for Ramzan bazaars, steps to price control, measures to eradicate dengue and polio and the ongoing wheat procurement.
