After opposing name changing of Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, now Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday (April 2) while addressing a press conference, made it clear that government was not changing name of Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP).
“Several new initiatives are being launched under Ehsaas programme, while a programme named Kifalat is being launched for the poor,” Chaudhry said, adding that government was also going to initiate ‘Sasta Ghar Scheme’.
Earlier Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had said the government’s move was a “conspiracy” to end the social safety net programme. He had said it was a “long-term conspiracy” under which the name of the programme would first be changed, followed by decreasing allocation for it, and eventually the programme would be ended.
