Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced that around two million families would benefit from the government’s new Ehsaas Kafaalat Policy aimed at extending financial support to special persons. As the world observed the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the PM said on Twitter that under the new programme, the special persons would be eligible for a monthly stipend of Rs2000.

“This is a step toward a disability-inclusive and sustainable post COVID-19 world,” he remarked.
