Philanthropists must help poor to mitigate inflation’s effects: Gillani

Senate Chairman Syed Yusuf Raza Gillani has urged philanthropists and affluent people to generously support the poor segments of society to mitigate the impact of inflation.

Talking to the media at the Mausoleum of Hazrat Musa Pak Shaheed after Eid ul Azha prayers, he said the government was trying to help the impoverished through budgetary measures.

Referring to the humanitarian crisis being unfolded in the Gaza Strip of Palestine, Senate Chairman said the Israeli war had destructed the whole infrastructure of the territory, pushing the entire population into starvation.

Replying to a question, he said the troops of Pakistan Armed Forces were sacrificing their lives for the defence of the country.
