The SAPM said that PTI government has allocated Rs 200 billion for Sindh in the budget of next fiscal year. Elaborating she said that last year Rs 616 billion were given to Sindh under NFC Award which have now been increased to Rs 815 billion proving how much importance the Centre attached to federating units.
