Not a Regular Feature!
Spokesman of the President House, Tahir Khushnood, said in an interview that the Presidency will remain open for only one day (Saturday) for the general public for specific hours.
To a question, Khushnood said that the decision to make it a regular feature has not been taken yet.
He maintained that the move was in line with Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf’s (PTI) promise to give the public access to the state buildings.
“Prior to this, we have already opened Governor Houses for the general public,” he maintained.
