10 Jun 2020

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation and Social Protection Dr Sania Nishtar Tuesday said first phase of Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme would continue till next month.

An amount of Rs12,000, was being provided to each deserving person to purchase edible items for their family members, she said while talking to a private news channel.

Dr Sania said Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme was brainchild of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Regarding second phase of the programme, she said, it would take some time to kick start the next phase.

To a question about the relief programme for Sindh, she said Sindh was enjoying a lion’s share from Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme.

She made it clear that we should not link Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) with Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme as both the programmes had different methodology and limits.

To a question about data collection of poor families, Dr Sania said, we had collected the data from 2019 programmes.

Commenting on Tiger Force, she said the volunteers were working in different areas of Pakistan to help assist the poor masses.
