The premier said: “Floating labourers, transport labourers, day labourers and boat pullers, who have lost their earning source after the attack of Covid-19, they are our priorities for this cash aid.”

“Moreover, we have given 5,000,000 new ration cards for the jobless people during the time of this coronavirus pandemic and many others are getting food aid from vulnerable group feeding (VGF) and some other social safety program,” she added.

The prime minister also said: “We have made the cash aid list for the temporary jobless people and their name is not present in any other government aid program. It is a fresh list and our committees checked and rechecked this list to avoid double payment through the mobile banking service.”
