Minister for Information Qamar Zaman Kaira said despite apprehensions, the stock scheme had taken off and had fulfilled the long-standing dream of the workers of Pakistan. He said thousands of acres of uncultivated lands will soon be distributed among the landless farmers, so that more tracts were brought under cultivation that would significantly boost the agricultural yield.
