Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif paid a visit to a flour distribution centre in Islamabad on Friday to oversee the work.

During the visit, the premier directed authorities to give priority to the distribution of flour bags to aged persons and women.

He also decided to provide two flour bags instead of one so that the people do not need to visit the distribution centres frequently.



He asked relevant authorities to chalk out a facilitatory mechanism for the person who can only present the photocopy of CNIC in case the original card is missing.

Under the Ramzan package jointly initiated by the prime minister and the Punjab government, 20 million bags of free flour have been distributed among deserving citizens by the 10th day of the programme.
