ISLAMABAD: Former President of Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) Dr. Shahid Rasheed Butt on Thursday welcomed the decision of the government to normalise relations with neighbouring India.

Such a move will be in the greater national interest as affordable agriculture and other products will be within the reach of Pakistan which will provide some relief to the masses reeling under unprecedented inflation for years, he said.

Shahid Rasheed Butt said that the move, if implemented, will also help the government to reduce inflation while it will also break the back of the influential food mafia skinning masses since years.

He said that Pakistan is facing an acute shortage of wheat while India is the best option to import cheap wheat to bridge the shortfall. Moreover, the government should discourage hoarding and smuggling to bring the prices down.
