PML-N Punjab president Rana Sanaullah on Wednesday demanded a relief package for small traders on an urgent basis, saying it was the state’s responsibility to enable them to sustain their businesses.

In a statement, Rana Sana said special bailout packages had been announced for small businesses around the world, adding that the small traders were also badly affected by lockdown just like the daily wagers but had been ignored in the prime minister’s relief package.

Calling for relief in rents for the tenants of government’s commercial properties, he reminded that maintaining the supply chain was essential the small businesses and traders.

The senior PML-N leader said Rs100 billion had been allocated for the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Centre’s package, which should be distributed immediately, otherwise, it would be of no use.

He also suggested that the said amount should be given to the provinces under the NFC (National Financial Commission) Award so that they could launch interest-free loans and assistance to the small traders.

The small traders using up to 200 units from electricity should be exempted from paying bills while postponing the other commercial billing for three months, said Rana Sana.
