Taking an action on self made sugar shortage and high price of sugar Lahore High Court (LHC) had set the selling price of sugar for millers at Rs. 40 but no one of mills had actually acted up. Reacting the LHC set the price even less at Rs. 36 for millers and Rs. 40 retail price. All of the sugar millers have declined sell sell sugar on rates set by High Court.
Afterwords, court had asked the province officials to make the millers act upon the decision, province officials called a meeting of millers to sit together and decide the convenient prices and a strategy to act upon them, but most of the sugar millers had also denied the attend the meeting.
