Ambreen | 11 years ago | Reply Regretted to say that the cabinet decreased the package by Rs.9000 but on the next day the MO Religious affairs said that there wont be any dcreased because they have already included a subsidy of Rs.9000 in Rs 238000 package. If it was the case then why announcement was made by the Minister Information after the cabinet meeting?
sohrab khan | 11 years ago | Reply Hajj expenditure decrease by the government is very low. Reduce Rs.25000.00 but Good efforts by the Government as well as Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani. Federal Minister Hamid Saeed Kazmi did not decrease the same but very well done by the prime minister. Who took the step and reduce hajj expenditure. Thanks
