Unjust distribution of BISP cards alleged

By our correspondent

CHITRAL: The people of Chitral have expressed their resentment about the unjust allotment of Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) cards to the non-deserving persons in Chitral at the cost of poor.

Talking to chitraltimes.com here on Monday, a number of people requesting not to be named complained that last year, the BISP had conducted extensive household survey in Chitral through AKRSP to determine the needy and poor people to allot the cards afresh.

They said that on the basis of the survey, they expected a fair distribution of the cards for financial assistance but all their hopes dashed to the ground when the revised list of the new beneficiaries who did not deserve the assistance by any definition.

They said that in many instances, the name of a woman was included in the list whose husband had recently retired from a nationalized bank where he served as its officer.

They said that the unjust distribution of BISP cards has caused heart-burning among the people of Chitral and they lost their lost their confidence on the credibility of the program.

They lamented that the people suffering from abject poverty are eking out for their sustenance but the BISP cards have been bestowed upon the influential allegedly having political affiliations.

They warned that if the injustice meted out to the poor is not redressed, then it will lead to anarchy in the society as the poor people will rise in revolt.
