MUZAFFARGARH: District police Monday collected around Rs 1.5 million to distribute ration among over 700 families across the district sans any photo shoot.

According to a police spokesman, deserving families were being provided ration sufficient for fifteen days. Money was donated by police from the rank of constables to the DPO and a committee headed by SP Investigations Masud Gujjar was deputed for transparency in purchase and distribution of ration.

Ration was being distributed among widows, labourers, rickshaw drivers, and transgenders in Muzaffargarh, Alipur, Jatoi and Kot Addu. On the orders of the DPO, there would be no photo shoot to avoid their sharing on social media.

Survey begins to list deserving people for financial assistance: District administration has started survey to list deserving people to provide them financial assistance from Punjab government during the ongoing lockdown.

The survey is being carried out by teams of teachers and patwaris and each team has been assigned four wards.

After completion of first phase, second phase would begin for verification to pave the way for payment to the deserving people under two programmes of the provincial government. Punjab government would provide Rs 3,000 per month person while another initiative was meant for payment of Rs 12,000 to those who rely on daily labour but lost jobs due to lockdown enforced to contain new coronavirus.
