ISLAMABAD, Dec 05 (APP):Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz Saturday said the Pakistan Citizen Portal, which connects people to public sector departments, was a gift for nation from Prime Minister Imran Khan, who was committed to empower the masses.
In a series of tweets, he said, “Any citizen can take up their issue with the department concerned without visiting the offices. Imran Khan has won the hearts of people by promoting transparency and giving them direct access for their grievance redressal.”
