It is one of the most stupid programs in recent times. Equally stupid and vying for number one position is Sasti Roti by Punjab Government.
Check the website:
"The allocation for the current fiscal year is Rs. 70 billion to provide cash assistance to 5 million families which constitutes almost 15% of the entire population. Thus the program aims at covering almost 40% of the population below the poverty line."
1 - No body from poor public can check if it reached the people or not.
2 - 70 Billion can be used to create some employment opportunities (new medium businesses)
3 - What monthly payment of 1000 to 5000 to families can do to alleviate poverty?
4 - In no way this is sustainable for poor! They would REMAIN dependent on this bheek.
I dont know when our leaders would get some sense and do something REALLY good!!!
