Minister of State for Poverty Alleviation Faisal Karim Kundi has said reaching out to the poorest segments in remote locations like erstwhile FATA and Gilgit Baltistan is the top most priority for BISP cash assistance Kafalat programme.
During a briefing to Parliamentarians from erstwhile FATA in Islamabad, Faisal Karim Kundi said Parliamentarians’ role in identifying the most deserving beneficiaries is of critical importance.
They should actively participate in this important cause of social uplift of under-privileged families.
The ex-FATA MNAs were informed that those households which have not been surveyed can get themselves registered so that they can be included in the quarterly cash assistance of 7000 rupees.
