Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has released Rs580 million to provide ration to the daily wagers and other needy people all over Sindh.
The chief minister decided to provide Rs20 million to every district for distribution of ration amongst the poor people, particularly those who earn their bread and butter on daily basis.
He has also decided to give financial assistance to the daily wagers and poor people so that they could afford square meals and other minor unavoidable expenditures.
Mr Shah has constituted a committee under Energy Minister Imtiaz Shaikh to prepare a mechanism to distribute ration and provide cash to the daily wagers. The committee is scheduled to finalize its recommendation by tomorrow evening.
The welfare organizations are already working with the Sindh government to provide ration to the people in different areas.
