PR No. 30 NO DESERVING WOMAN IN BALUCHISTAN WOULD BE LEFT OUT IN RESURVEY OF BISP: MARVI Islamabad

The incumbent government would ensure that no deserving woman in Baluchistan remains deprived of financial assistance of BISP. BISP will provide a real list of poor to the government for effective service delivery. The performance of governments whether it be federal, provincial or local depends on reliable data for better targeted programs to eradicate poverty.  This was stated by Minister of State and Chairperson BISP MNA Marvi Memon while addressing a gathering of local government, notables and BISP beneficiaries in Divisional Office of BISP at Dera Murad Jamali. BISP beneficiaries and poor women who were left out in the previous survey from the village of Chatthar and other rural areas of Naseerabad attended the beneficiary outreach campaign.

In order to interact with the women of those areas which were neglected in the previous survey, Ms. Marvi, alongwith Advisor to Chief Minister Baluchistan and Minister for Mines and Minerals Development Mr. Muhammad Khan Lehri and Mr. Taj Baloch, also visited the villages of Muhammad Yaqub Saparra and Wahid Bakhsh Bangulzai of tehsil Tamboo. Chairperson BISP’s visits are part of beneficiary outreach campaign just ahead of the launch of pilot phase of National Socio-Economic Registry (NSER) update.
