Lahore: Despite government claims, sugar is not available in the market at fixed prices to the common man and that is why there is a rush in the markets for cheap sugar.

Sugar has disappeared in the markets of Lahore and half a kilo of sugar is hardly available at Rs 85 per kg while sugar is being sold at Rs 110 per kg in general stores.

Sources said that there are still queues in Ramadan bazaars to buy cheap sugar at Rs 65 per kg where sugar is being sold by marking the buyer’s finger.
