“Materialization of such initiatives depict that we are moving in the right direction under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has been strong proponent of public welfare,” he remarked.
Before the commencement of the cabinet meeting, Ijaz Shah said Prime Minister Imran Khan questioned every minister about the initiatives taken by their ministries for the public welfare.
He said the Capital Development Authority and Islamabad police were taking several initiatives that were aimed at public facilitation and resolving their problems instantly.

The minister said Imran Khan was the first Prime Minister of Pakistan who had been striving to run the country on pattern of the Madina state.
He said the government was bringing reforms in seminaries and introducing the syllabus that would help them become a constructive part of the society.
“We are just adding the subjects like Maths, Science, English and History in madrassas’ syllabus,” Ijaz Shah replied to another question.
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis Syed Zulfikar Bukhari said the special desk for expats was set up in the facilitation centre to ensure swift resolution of the overseas Pakistanis’ issues.
The initiative, he said was taken by the ministry of Overseas and Human Resource Development in collaboration with the ICT Police.
He said the officials of Overseas Pakistanis Foundation had been deputed over the special desk to establish a strong connectivity among the departments concerned for resolving expats’ complaints on fast-track.
The move was the part of efforts made by the government to facilitate the expatriates, besides encouraging their investments in real estate sector of the country, he added.
In response to high number of land grabbing complaints lodged by Pakistani expatriates on Prime Minister Performance Delivery Unit (PMDU) and Call SarZameen App, he said the ministry had planned to set up the facility in police stations of ever city after its complete success in Islamabad.
