A leading news channel has quoted MD Utility Stores Corporation confirming the approval of the package, saying that the new package is different from what PM Khan released in January this year.


  • Make it easier for people to do their own business, ease of doing business is the key. These handouts are good for a few people and for a short period of time. And deserving people don’t even get them

    • Exactly. Just like the saying “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

      Govt needs to stop giving us fish in the name of charity and let us fish in peace.

  • It’s a bestever stance and it’s not judicious to say it measures taken by Zardari or Nawaz Sharif because that time commodities were subsidised purely from loans. But one thing should be remembered that masses who dislike Khan will mourn bringing forward some other issues.
