September 21, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said it is top priority of the government to ensure that subsidies are reaching to the deserving people. The prime minister was chairing a meeting in Islamabad on making the system of subsidies provided by the government in various sectors transparent and systematic. He said the government is making all out efforts to reform the system of subsidies in different sectors for the purpose. Imran Khan said subsidies provided from the state exchequer are aimed at supporting the weaker sections of the society and promoting socio-economic development. He said taking advantage of the loopholes in the subsidy system by the undeserving people is not only wastage of government resources but also a waste of the rights of the deserving. The premier appreciated the efforts of think-tank and directed that a roadmap be drawn for each viable proposal, keeping in view government's priorities so that they can be implemented in a phased manner.
