Having and maintaining official websites in Pakistan Government is considered to be a thorny task from the past experiences, came on the scene. And keeping them updated is a something what-should-not-be-discussed since the official personnel may have other “important” tasks to do.
It’s been three and a half months now since the last governor Mr. Salman Taseer got assassinated in Islamabad.
The official website for the governor of Punjab is www.GovernorPunjab.gov.pk, which still shows Salman Taseer as governor of Punjab, really need to be updated. Interesting fact is that the website has been redirected to Salman Taseer’s personal website www.SalmaanTaseer.com
So if you are in a mood to visit the official website of Governor Punjab, you will simply land on the personal website of late Salman Taseer.
Though you can visit the website manually http://www.governorpunjab.gov.pk/index.html but still, Slaman Taseer is there.
I wonder whether Mr. Latif Khosa (present governor of Punjab) is unaware of this situation or he is just ignorant enough to pay heed to the issue. Whatsoever, there must be some dedicated department/group under the federal government to tackle such issues as three and a half months are more than enough.
Federal government had started something named as e-government campaign back in the past, which started off, launching official websites for government body. But when it comes to updating? Huh! What’s that?
