LAHORE :Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Sunday thanked Prime Minister Imran Khan for enhancing financial assistance for the deserving families on his request and also increased financial aid from Rs4,000 to Rs12,000 each for 2.5 million impoverished and deserving families.

He said that the federal and Punjab governments were extending financial assistance to the needy and deserving families through collaboration in Ehsas Programme and CM Punjab Insaf Imdad Package, according to a handout issued here.
