Opposition leader Khursheed Shah has written a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to release 8th National Finance Commission Award ( NFCA). The opposition leader said that it is high time to release the award.
The Opposition leader letter reads that Seventh NFCA award had ended on June 3 2015. However, seventh award tenure has been extended by presidential order instead of releasing the 8th. It further reads that in present scenario it looks that another extension would be given to the 7th award. The letter stressed that present circumstances demand releasing of the 8th award instead re-extension to 7th award.
The Opposition leader stated in the letter that under NFCA award funds distributed to provinces proportionately on basis of population adding that there is immense need to increase funds to end poverty and backwardness spread in the country.
Khursheed Shah has also raised the issue in the parliament and no proper respond was given by the government on the issue, henceforth, the Opposition compelled to send the letter to the PM.
