Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Monday said that more than Rs 6.53 billion has been distributed among the deserving families in five days under the CM Punjab Insaf Imdad Programme and Ehsaas Programme.
He said that more than 544,000 deserving families were given financial aid and a total of 250,000 deserving families will be given aid and more than 600 camps have been set up throughout the province to provide financial assistance to the needy. "The poor people are affected due to Coronavirus and consequent lockdown, and it is the government's duty to help these people. A most transparent financial aid programme of this magnitude has been introduced, for the first time in the history of the province," he added.
Meanwhile, he took a jab at the opposition by saying that they have no strategy or any agenda for dealing with the Coronavirus; they use the issue of pandemic for political scoring. He regretted that the opposition politicized this important issue.
