Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed said that the federal cabinet has decided to tighten the noose around the sugar mafia.
While talking to mediamen, the minister vowed that the sugar mafia “will not be spared”. “The arrest proceedings of these evil doers will be based on actions dating back to 1985,” he added.
Rasheed said that it was also decided that an investigation based on the sugarcane report will be carried out.
The cabinet also accorded approval to the country’s first mobile phone device manufacturing policy, according to a notification by the Ministry of Industry and Production.
The policy aims to incentivise local assemblers who will provide jobs to local engineers, skilled and semi-skilled educated youth.
Under the policy, the assembly of mobile phones valued under $350 will be exempt from fixed income tax.
