Ehsaas Saylani Langar Scheme to provide free food at 112 locations in Islamabad
- The provision of food would be facilitated at 112 different locations in Islamabad in the first phase of the Langar programme and will spread to the remaining parts of the country.
- The scheme to provide free food is not solely owned by the government and has been launched in coordination with the Saylani Trust.
PM Imran Khan as of today said, at the inauguration ceremony of ‘Ehsaas-Saylani Langar Scheme’, that people are losing the patience as it has only been 13 months and they question for the ‘Riyasat-e-Medina’.
“The state of Madina wasn’t created within a day,” he said. Ehsaas Saylani Langar is one of the projects of the government’s Ehsaas Programme that was meant to reduce poverty and hunger countrywide. The inauguration ceremony was held in the capital city today.
Earlier, shelter homes were opened for the refuge of homeless people and now the initiative of Ehsaas langar has been taken. The scheme, however, is not solely owned by the government and has been launched in coordination with the Saylani Trust.
Dr Sania Nishtar who is currently heading the Ehsaas programme informed about the government’s intentions to open 112 soup kitchens that would be providing food to about 600 people on a daily basis.
The initiative will work in Islamabad at the beginning. She also said that the premier had instructed that the food at the soup kitchens must be hygienic and must be distributed among the people in ample proportions, adding that the Ehsaas Langar has been initiated in accordance with the wishes of PM Khan.
The founder of Saylani trust Maulana Bashir Farooq Qadri while speaking on the occasion also applauded premier’s initiative and his inclinations towards the poor and deprived people in the society.
