“Besides provision of interest-free loans to youth, women, poor and middle classes through the Kamyab Jawan Programme, various initiatives such as Riayat Ration, Education Scholarships, Emergency Cash, mother-child healthcare, Panahgahs and Women Centres have been taken under the Ehsaas Programme,” the PM said while talking to National Assembly members, who called on him.

The MNAs expressed their complete confidence in PM Imran’s leadership.

The MNAs included Sher Akbar Khan, Saleemur Rehman, Zil-e-Huma, Chaudhry Amir Sultan Cheema, Malik Umar Aslam Khan, Usman Khan Tarkai, Arbab Amir Ayub, Imran Khattaq, Javed Iqbal Warraich, Abdul Majeed Khan Niazi and Niaz Ahmad Jhakar.
