Punjab govt to provide Rs 60,000 monthly ration to families

Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi on Friday said that the World Bank will be involved in a government project to provide Rs 60,000 in monthly ration packages to families with two or fewer children to promote family planning.

In his remarks to the students at the University of Gujrat (UoG) 7th convocation, Elahi noted that the Ehsas Program’s family planning package would reinvigorate an area that had previously been neglected.

He claimed that the PML-N leadership would visit the nation and take money out of the country, claiming that the Shehbaz government had brought about a “tsunami of inflation and price hike” that had severely exposed Sharif.

Elahi promised the opening of a dental college in Gujrat and a children’s hospital with 700 beds that will be a “centre of excellence.”

He highlighted his delight with the UoG performance in fostering an educational culture, notably among the 62% of women who attended the university. He noted that it was a fantastic illustration of women’s empowerment.
