ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday reiterated the incumbent government’s commitment to providing financial resources to help weaker segments of society for the basic commodities through a targeted subsidy.

The premier chaired a session which was attended by finance minister Shaukat Tarin, SAPM on poverty alleviation Sania Nishtar, PM’s advisor on revenue Waqar Masood, the president of National Bank Arif Usmani, among others.

Dr. Sania Nishter briefed the session on the targeted subsidy program survey taken out under the Ehsaas program and said the survey would complete by the end of this month.
