As the price of roti rises to Rs50, the Quetta wheat issue gets worse.

Balochistan is experiencing a flour crisis as a result of rain and flash flooding. Tandoor owners have increased the price of tandoori roti in the provincial capital and decreased the weight of the dish.

The price committee and the district administration appear to be conspiring. They have closed their eyes and left the people at the mercy of the profiteering tandoor owners.

According to sources, Quetta has more than 163 tandoors where citizens buy thousands of rotis every day. A week ago, tandoor owners quietly increased the price of tandoori roti by reducing its weight.

Sources say that a roti weighing 320 grams is being sold for Rs50, instead of Rs25. Some places around the city are selling rotis with less weight for 25 or 30 rupees.
