PoK On The Brink Of Food Riots

| Updated: January 12, 2023 15:18

The population of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is on the edge of food riots as a result of the region’s unprecedented flour scarcity, which is being blamed solely on Islamabad and the PoK authority in Bagh and Muzaffarabad.

While the government’s subsidised wheat supply has all but ceased, on the other hand, the cost of other necessities has risen. The supply of culinary essentials is getting low in stores and grocers.

The price of bread and bakery goods has also increased as a result of the shortage of wheat flour. Chaos has resulted from severe circumstances, and in recent days, some inter-group fighting has been witnessed in the area.

The locals blamed the government for the situation. A protester in Muzaffarabad said, “We will continue to protest till our demands are met. The scope of this protest can also increase, it can go from one district to another. We can protest in the entire PoK region. If the poor people yearn for bread, we are not responsible for it. It is the responsibility of the government.”

Some have claimed that wheat is an essential part of the PoK people’s diet and that depriving them of this food staple could have disastrous effects. Locals claimed that this was just the most recent setback in a string of issues that had a negative impact on their level of living and fundamental requirements.

A local trader said, “Essential goods are out of the common man’s reach and we are helpless. The government is not helping us. Because of this, we have had to close the hotels completely. We are not getting our supplies fully and like every citizen, we, too, are helpless. Flour and ghee are priced at a premium and instead of grappling with skyrocketing prices, we thought it best to shut the hotels down.”
