After 2014 floods hit Jhang District, politician Imran Khan criticized the mill and a bridge (under-construction in Bhawana) while addressing in Jhang that Sharif group were only constructing the bridge to save their mill not the people. Where farmers had complained that the mill only pays them 70 percent of the offered price for sugar-cane, and that even after one year.[6]
