Lahore, April 22, 2021 (PPI-OT): Ameen Punjab Bait-ul-Maal Council Malik Muhammad Azam called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar and briefed him about the organisational performance and programs. Talking on this occasion, the CM reemphasised that the government is committed to resolving problems faced by the people adding that the welfare of the indigent stratum is a responsibility of the government. The government has taken several steps to bring the disfranchised segments into the sphere of development, he said. The government is committed to providing every possible resource to help the impecunious stratum, he stressed.
The CM announced that needy segments of the society will be provided opportunities through Ehsaas Programme as the special package has been given to the womenfolk, elderly citizens and differently-abled persons. Meanwhile, sewing machines will be given to the widows and jobless women to earn their livelihood, he stated. Similarly, the CM said that assistive devices will be given to hearing-impaired persons to live a normal life and wheelchairs will also be provided to the physically challenged persons to move without difficulty.
Along with it, the scope of shelter homes and almonries is being expanded, he declared and regretted that welfare of the poverty-stricken segments was ignored in previous tenures and no government paid any heed to work for the deprived segments of the society. In fact, such segments were kept ignored in the past, he regretted. On the other hand, the PTI government has worked for the rehabilitation of needy persons, he added.
