BAHAWALPUR: The Pakistan Kissan Ittehad has announced a sit-in in front of the Punjab Chief Minister House tomorrow (Monday) for an increase in the support price of wheat in the province.

The announcement was made by Kissan Ittehad chairman Khalid Hussain Bath at a press conference here on Saturday.

The chairman of the farmers’ body said that the Rs3,900 per 40kg wheat support price announced by the Punjab government was not acceptable to the growers.

He said the farmers would stage a protest sit-in on Monday outside the CM House against the low wheat support price announced by the provincial government, demanding an increase in the price.
