Dr Pervez Tahir, former Chief Economist, Planning Commission of Pakistan said that rural poverty is at greater numbers as compared to urban poverty in Pakistan, and the primary reason is lack of asset and opportunities. He estimated that around 54.7 percent landless people in the country are living below the poverty line. He said that 51 percent area of country's land is owned by less than 5 percent people adding that majority of 67 percent landowners own less than 5 percent of total area. He said that land concentration is higher in Punjab, followed by Sindh and then Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where only 1 percent people own 30 percent of cultivatable land in KP.
He was of the view that money spent on poverty alleviation programmes must have been spent on purchasing lands and giving land rights to landless people, which would have more profound impact in reducing poverty in the country.
