Following social media rumours that the PPP-led administration was selling flour bags it had received as relief from the United Kingdom for the recent floods in local businesses, the Sindh Government came under fire on Sunday.

Social media users posted an image of a flour bag with the words “UK aid” printed on it, and several Twitterati claimed that the bags were a component of the help that the UK sent to Pakistan and were being sold in Karachi stores.

However, it was later noted that this picture was from 2014.

Furthermore, the CM House made it clear that the news was based on a “fabricated” social media post in a brief statement posted on their official Twitter account.

“The UK is not a partner in this programme and has not provided wheat flour. Politically motivated propaganda is being spread to undermine, discredit relief work and to divert attention from the genuine service,” the statement read.

“As Government of Pakistan and NDMA has not received any aid from the United Kingdom containing/consisting of flour bags,” it was clarified.
