ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani said that the government was committed to the welfare and well-being of masses, particularly the weaker segments of society, as it was also evident from the PPP's manifesto. "The Pakistan Peoples Party's manifesto is an expression of our government's commitment to the weaker segments of society", he said while addressing an awards distribution ceremony organized by Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP) here at the PM House on Friday. The Prime Minister said the PPP's manifesto was based on the vision of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed, and her concern for the welfare of the people. "Our manifesto has five pillars, Education, Energy, Environment, Employment and Equity", he said and added "the vision of Mohtarma Shaheed will always remain a source of inspiration and a beacon of light for us." The ceremony was also addressed by Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Welfare, Ms Shahnaz Wazir Ali and Chairman PCP Board Dr Shamsh Lakha. PML(N) Secretary Information, Ahsan Iqbal was also present on the occasion. Lack of sustainable investments in industry, infrastructure and agriculture sectors resulted in steep rise in inflation; widening budget deficit; depleting reserves; and borrowing that touched all time high, which resulted much below the target growth rate during the outgoing fiscal year, the Premier added. The Prime Minister said as the present government had inherited an economy in total mess due to which, "we are facing problems in all walks of national life, due to the past mismanagement; this is affecting every one of us, but the common man has suffered the most."
