Prime Minister Gilani regretted the delay in disbursement of the funds for the Gilgit Baltistan and assured that allocations would be made for the people in the budget.
He said government was committed to empower the people, and particularly the women and would do all to remove their sense of deprivation.
He said the smart cards under the Benazir Income Support Program would help the people meet their basic needs.

He regretted that due to bad weather he could not visit earlier and said he however kept in touch with the authorities about measures to drain the lake and relief activities.
The lake was created on January 4 as a huge landslide blocked the flow of Hunza river and carried along with it the Atta Abad village. The artificial lake has stretched back to 23 km, submerging a number of low-lying villages, destroying crops and fruit trees.
Estimates put the volume at around 100,000 acre feet and was rising daily as increasing summer heat melted the glaciers upstream.
Prime Minister, accompanied by Minister for Information Qamar Zaman Kaira, Interior Minister Rehman Malik, Minister for Water and Power Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, also had an aerial view of the artificial lake and the affected areas.
He was informed that the boat service has been stopped and stranded people would be ferried through helicopters and supplies dropped.

Earlier Chairman NDMA Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed briefed the prime minister about the situation and measures taken to address any eventuality, soon after his arrival in Gilgit.
According to his estimates water will start flowing over the 24 meter deep and 1300 meter long spillway created by the Frontier Works Organisation by May 25 and said arrangements have been made for 24,000 IDPs from 32 villages.
He said camps have been set up at government schools and arrangements made to provide them food, shelter and medical assistance.
He said those killed in the landsliding have been paid a compensation of Rs 0.5 million each, while Rs 100,000 provided for the injured. This total amount of Rs 10.2 million was distributed amongst families of 6 missing, 3 killed and 7 injured people.
The Prime Minister appreciated the efforts of the FWO, the NDMA and other agencies and volunteers that made hectic efforts to provide relief to the affected people.
He visited the Control Room and the IDP camp to see arrangements for the displaced people. He met the people and assured that the government would take all steps to take care of them in their hour of need.
Gilani also inaugurated the Benazir Langar at the relief camps of Hunza Nagar and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB), established for the Internally Displaced Persons of Hunza Lake, by Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal.
He appreciated the swift arrangements made by the Managing Director PBM Zamurd Khan in this regard. Gilani was informed that some 50 truck loads had been dispatched from Islamabad, that would reach Gilgit in two or three days.
He said milk, sweets and toys would also be provided to the children sheltering in the camps.
