Reduction in sugar prices demanded Senior Vice President 'The Founders Haji Mohammad Asif has demanded of the federal government to reduce sugar prices from Rs 65 to Rs 25. He expressed these views while commenting upon reduction in price of sugar at international market here on Tuesday. Haji Asif said last year the decision of Supreme Court of Pakistan and High Court could not be implemented as the sugar mill owner had taken the stance that reduction of sugar was very difficult due to rise in sugar price at international level. He further said now the sugar price had been reduced in international market to less than Rs 30 and sugar mills owners were also getting a reduction in taxes but still the sugar was being sold at Rs 65, which was really deplorable.
