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.
These chicken units are being increasingly sold. People only have to show a copy of CNIC to buy one unit.
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.
“This way, they will have nutrient food for eating and more chicken and eggs to sell,” he had said.
"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.
