It is good to note that our government is planning ahead and have decided to come up with a relief package in Ramadan. Subsidies on food items and other edibles will be provided some relief to the wounded masses. In the recent meeting of ECC, Federal Minister for Finance Senator Ishaq Dar approved Rs.2 billion relief package for Ramadan. In this regard, Utility Stores Cooperation (USC) is timely directed to ensure the availability of pulses, flour and other necessary items. We can hope that Utility Stores Cooperation, now, would be more active and efficient to provide necessary items to the masses as 4000 USC outlets will be providing the subsidy. Undoubtedly, government’s economic policies are in the right direction and one may hope that the benefit of these policies would trickle down to the masses soon.
