ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Parliamentarians leader and Sindh Provincial Minister Saeed Ghani on Tuesday said that some media outlets are publishing and airing news about Tharparkar which are far from reality.
He said according to record, Tharparkar district has a far low infant mortality rate, 18/1000, than the rest of Pakistan, 62/1000, in 2017.
He further said that this year in Tharparkar district 208,247 families will be provided 50 kg wheat per family in the first phase of the distribution of wheat.
He also said that BISP had marked 62 thousand families for the provision of wheat and out of them, 52 thousand families were provided wheat the last time distribution took place. Saeed Ghani said that the Sindh government has established a high standard of transparency in the distribution of wheat in Tharparkar district.
Ghani further said that there are a number of families that have not updated their status with NADRA. “They will also be provided with wheat once they get their status updated with NADRA,” he said.
He also informed that a mobile app has been introduced for providing wheat in Tharparkar.
