KPK police is fast becoming a model police for the country in terms of technological uptake. Good going PTI wish you all the best
Masha Allah compliments to the KPK for blessings from the people. Your will to collaborate/share your excellence to assist other provinces of Pakistan for their benefit.
Karachi in this reference has a lot to gain from the KPK app., for ride hailing, emergency taxi for taking accident patient on the back recline front seat with the seat belt on, oxygen cylinder, etc., etc. The Ride Hailing, and Ride Sharing services are really great and appreciate Uber, Careem to consider Karachi on these and the app., as well ASAP
Great initiative, showing loyalty on the government level which is huge mind change.
