PESHAWAR: Prime Minister Imran Khan has on Thursday reportedly taken notice of delay in the completion of 2,250 flats designated for labour class in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, ARY News reported.
According to the information shared by the sources, it is after Khyber Pakhtunkhwa health minister Shaukat Yousafzai brought this issue to Prime Minister, citing bureaucratic disinterest for the hindrance behind project completion.
The Prime Minister released Rs200 funds immediately, sources said, to complete the flats for labour housing and have assigned his special assistant Zulfi Bukhari with Yousafzai to resolve matter soon.
