Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif has said that the Punjab government was planning to launch a Kisan Card for the farmers in the province, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to members of the Provincial Assembly from different districts, CM Punjab said that in the wake of the wheat scam, the Punjab government was planning to give direct subsidies to the farmers.

Maryam said that the Punjab government has proposed to the Federal Government to reduce import duty on agricultural machinery.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister apprised the visiting public representatives about various Government initiatives meant to ensure welfare and ease of common man.

She said that food prices will come down further, because they are creating a separate system for price control and other related issues. She claimed that whenever PML-N came to power, rates of food items fall down. She observed that in the past some people used to say that “we did not come to power for potatoes and onions”.

The visiting MPAs paid tribute to Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz Sharif for reducing the prices of bread and other food items.

Maryam Nawaz also briefed MPAs that the government will bring hybrid buses to the city, besides giving motor bikes to the youth.

She added that a loan proposal was also under consideration for building a house on a 2-4 marla plot. Moreover, they will make houses for the homeless people. Currently, they are reviewing plots in the villages for the purpose.  

She directed the visiting members of the Provincial Assembly to maintain close contact with the common man. Earlier, she also listened to their suggestions and recommendations for resolving the public issues.

Members of Provincial Assembly Hina Parvez Butt, Marghub Ahmed, Kashif Padhar, Muhammad Hasan Riaz, Naeem Safdar Ansari, Ghazali Salim Butt, Zahid Akram, Tariq Subhani, Muhammad Salman Naeem, Qasim Nadeem, former members of Punjab Assembly Chaudhry Shehbaz and Bilal Zulfikar Ali Khokhar were among those who met the CM.
