Keeping in view the unbearable inflation in the country, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Tuesday announced a Ramazan package that includes free wheat flour for the underprivileged.
As a major relief for the poor, the package is the first of its type, targeted at assisting the underprivileged classes in the country.
PM Shehbaz Sharif chaired a review meeting in Lahore and said after the program’s introduction in Punjab, the federal government would give help to provinces to emulate it.
The prime minister directed that the comprehensive strategy for supplying flour to needy families be completed as quickly as feasible.
The Ramazan package was presented to the prime minister by Chief Secretary Punjab Zahid Akhtar Zaman and Finance Secretary Mujahid Sherdil in the review meeting.
The meeting was attended by Punjab Caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Raza Naqvi, the Secretary of Food, and other top authorities.
