Amid criticism, PM Imran’s chicken formula gaining popularity among rural women

The chicken units are being increasingly sold at Rs 1200

Islamabad (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 14th January, 2019) Amid criticism by the opposition and social media against the chicken formula introduced by Prime Minister Imran Khan, the project is gaining popularity in Punjab.

Media reports said that the units of chickens are now available in Lahore on discounted prices.

These chicken units are being increasingly sold. People only have to show a copy of CNIC to buy one unit.

A large number of rural women are especially benefitting from the project. These women believe that the country chicken will help in overcoming malnutrition and economic crisis in the country.

According to Lahore Stock officials, the unit includes five roosters and five hens. The unit consists of country chicken of Golden and Egyptian breed. A unit of chickens is being sold for Rs 1200.

The chickens will be able to lay eggs in two three weeks which can be fed to the children.

Addressing the ceremony to mark 100 days of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, Prime Minister Imran Khan had proposed to provide poultry and livestock to women to encourage entrepreneurship in underprivileged women.

The prime minister said that his government will provide injections to them for raising the chicken faster.

“This way, they will have nutrient food for eating and more chicken and eggs to sell,” he had said.

However, the plan was welcomed with severe trolls and criticism on social media which was shut down by the prime minister himself.

"For the colonised minds when desis talk about chickens combating poverty they get mocked, but when "walaitis" talk about desi chicken and poverty it's brilliance!" he wrote.
