ProPakistani quoted the Finance Department, “department had proposed the closure of the program soon after the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz assumed power in the province.” 

Details: On the other hand, the Chief Minister’s Utility Support Program has been started in Punjab, “providing essential commodities at subsidized rates at utility stores across the province.” The publication quoted development: “Finance Department had claimed that Punjab had disbursed Rs. 9 billion to the Federal Government for the Rashan Program.”
