PM Imran Khan initiative for the betterment of citizens Prime Minister Imran Khan on 8th January 2020 visited a utility store in Islamabad’s G-9 sector where he launched a Rs7 billion package meant to provide relief to the poor through the Utility Stores Corporation (USC).
The package, which was approved by the Prime Minister earlier , includes lowering the prices of essential edible items, including flour, cooking oil, rice and pulses by offering subsidies.
The premier also announced that a Ration Card scheme will also be introduced soon which would enable lower-income people to buy commodities worth up to Rs3,000. He further said that the utility relief package will not only provide affordable commodities to the public but will also help in keeping a check on “inflationary trends” in the open market.
Under the scheme, a bag of flour weighing 20 kilogrammes will be available at a subsidised rate of Rs800, said the prime minister, adding that the government was striving to increase local production of edible oil and pulses so prices can be controlled.
Utility Stores Corporation Department Under the chairmanship of Zulqarnain Ali Khan and Managing Director Umar Lodhi is taking effective and practical measures to give direct relief to the citizens.
The officials of Utility Department as compare to the previous governments are taking interest for the betterment of department as well as for the citizens because the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf led Federal Government have clear stance from day one to give relief to the common citizens which has been ignored by the past governments.
