“When we sought a total lockdown without thinking about the consequences for the daily wage earners, the street vendors, the labourers, all of whom face poverty & hunger for themselves & their families,” the premier said.
“May Allah forgive us our sin of neglecting our dispossessed & poor citizens.”
“Let us also resolve as a nation, in this holy month of Ramazan, to lift our marginalised citizens out of poverty & mainstream them as our Prophet PBUH did in the world’s first welfare state – Riyasat-i- Madina – and as China has done in lifting 700 m people out of poverty,” Prime Minister Khan urged.
