LAYYAH: Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Friday has told that the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is struggling hard to make the country a welfare state.
While addressing the inaugural ceremony of Ehsaas Amdan Programme in Layyah, the premier said 80,000 people will be getting interest-free loan every month. Six million families will be facilitated with health cards while 50,000 scholarships will be given to the deserving people, he continued.
PM Imran pledged to provide efficient lawyers to the poverty-stricken masses for speedy conclusion of their cases. We are also focusing on enhancing the education system in the country with advanced policies, he stated.
The premier told that 180 shelter homes have been established across the country so far.
The Ehsaas Amdan Programme of 15 billion rupees is aimed at creating respectable livelihood opportunities to the poverty-stricken people.
The programme involves giving away small assets to those who live below the poverty line so that they can earn their livelihood and come out of the shackles of poverty.
These assets include goats, cows, buffaloes, poultry, body of Chingchi rickshaws, and inputs for small retail outlets and small enterprises.
According to Special Assistant to the Prime Minister, Dr Sania Nishter, the programme is being launched in 375 union councils of 23 poorest districts of all the four provinces of the country.
Under the Ehsaas Amdan Programme, a target has been set for providing around 200,000 assets to the deserving households including 60 percent women.
