Launching of Ehsaas program, which is a multifaceted sectoral safety welfare program, is yet another feather in the PTI Government’s cap by bringing positive changes in lives of downtrodden segment of the society.
In line with vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the PTI led KP Government has expedited work on Ehsaas program for socio-economic empowerment and assistance of extreme poor, orphans, widows, homeless, disabled, those who risk medical impoverishment, jobless, poor farmers, laborers, sick and undernourished, students from low-income backgrounds, poor women and elderly citizens and its positive effects are being started visible in the province.
On March 27, 2019, Prime Minister Imran Khan had launched ‘Ehsaas’ program aimed at to reduce inequality, invest in people, alleviate poverty and bring poorest of the poor under social safety net. ‘Ehsaas is the one word which lacked in the past rulers. Ehsaas is just not a single program for needy but a concept of life. It is not only helping others but also putting restraint on ruling elite. Unless inner conscious is satisfied, realization of the less privileged in ruling class, the real sense of ehsaas will remain invisible and would be superficial,’ said PTI leader and Nazim Bahadar Khan while talking to media.
He said more than 38.8% of people in the country suffer from poverty in one or other form, and 24.4% do not have enough money to satisfy their basic food and non-food needs. The PTI leader said the past rulers did not pay any attention to such like social welfare programs and resultantlly people mostly poorer, homeless, widows, orphans and vulnerable groups of the society are suffering today.
‘The personal greed of the past rulers and their ill polices have totally hijacked the sense of ehsaas and people become more poorer due to loot and plunder and rampage of corruption in the past 10 years,’ he said.
