PM Imran inaugurates shelter homes in Peshawar
PESHAWAR - Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday inaugurated shelter homes in Peshawar during his one-day visit to the city.

The shelter homes have been established by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government under its 100-day plan.  According to Radio Pakistan, 432 people will be accommodated in the shelter homes where they will also be provided food.

The prime minister will also address the provincial cabinet and MPAs regarding the 100-day plan at Nishtar Hall during his visit.

Earlier in November, the prime minister broke ground for the establishment of a Panah Gahproject for the down-and-out segments of the society after pictures of a man sleeping with his children on the streets of Lahore went viral.

The premier took to Twitter and announced that he had directed Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar to arrange tents for the people sleeping on footpaths and provide them food.

The premier expressed that the arrangement was temporary until the Panah Gahs (shelters) are built, as the weather is turning increasingly cold.

The incumbent premier stated that spots in Peshawar and Karachi were also being identified to erect the tents for the people who have to spend the night under the sky.

Prime Minister Imran Khan also shared few pictures substantiating that the camps were being set up for the homeless in Lahore and food was also being provided.

A couple of weeks ago, the prime minister had laid the foundation stone of the Punjab government’s shelter homes project.

According to the spokesperson of the Punjab government, five shelter homes will be set up outside Data Darbar in Lahore in the first phase of the project.

The project is aimed at restoring the self-respect of those people who spend the night under the open sky. It is also aimed at broadening the circle of social responsibility by the state and citizens.
