Gilani asks party workers to adopt reconciliation culture

LAHORE,- Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has urged Pakistan People’s Party workers to adopt reconciliation culture in the best interest of the country.Talking to workers after a meeting of Lahore division office-bearers here at State Guest House on Saturday, he announced formation of a committee comprising three senior ministers to reduce overlapping in the federal ministries. He cited the example of Labour Ministry, Women Development Ministry and Welfare Ministry whose work overlapped regarding the Jahez fund.
He said the government was contemplating a policy to ensure a smooth sugar supply, like wheat and rice, as both commodities were surplus now. “The step is being taken to avoid sugar crises in future,” he added.
The Premier said the government would supply sugar in special bazaars to provide commodities to poor people at low rates next year.
Gilani said katchi abadis would be regularized as their residents were poor and facing problems. On the Benazir Income Support Programme, he said a door-to-door poverty survey was being made in the country to ensure use of funds in a transparent manner. “The survey has been completed in 60 districts of the country and it will be saved by NADRA,” he added.
He said 25 million NICs would be issued free to new voters before the next elections.
The Prime Minister said the 1973 constitution was introduced by the Pakistan People’s Party and it was also the responsibility of the party to make amendments to restore it to its original shape, adding a constitutional reforms committee was already working on it.
He said the government was also taking a number of steps to ensure good governance in the country
