KARACHI, Jan 7: With a wheat flour crisis looming in a few districts of Sindh, protesting flour millers announced on Monday that they would close their mills in Karachi, Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas if they failed to find an audience with the food minister by 5pm on Tuesday.

In a related development, Chaudhry Ansar Jawed took over as chairman of the Pakistan Flour Mills Association (Sindh) from Mumtaz Shaikh who, the flour millers claimed, was a temporary chief of the body after the end of his tenure on Sept 30, 2012.
