PM launches Ehsaas Saylani Langar Scheme in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has launched Ehsas Saylani Langar Scheme in Islamabad today to provide free food to needy people.
Speaking on the occasion, the prime minister said that the Ehsas Saylani Langar Scheme was aimed at the elimination of poverty to develop the country as New Pakistan.

Speaking on the occasion, the prime minister said the government’s steps are aimed at uplifting the lower strata of the society ultimately leading the country to a welfare state.

Appreciating the langar scheme under Ehsaas programme, he said the government will continue introducing such steps every month to improve the living standard of the poor until people are fully employed.

Imran Khan said efforts are underway to build the country on the pattern of the State of Madina where people would have equal rights. He said the current government is taking measures to narrow the gap between the rich and the poor to develop social harmony in the country.

The prime minister said the government is committed to spend the tax money on welfare of the poor.
