Hafizabad administration has announced a public holiday in the district to mark the arrival of Prime Minister Imran Khan in the city.

In a notification, Hafizabad’s Deputy Commissioner Naveed Shahzad Mirza said all the offices of local and provincial departments will remain closed across the district on Nov 7.

“This order shall be applicable only to the offices of local and provincial departments,” read the notification shared by Samaa.


Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar will also accompany the prime minister on his visit.

During his one-day visit to the district, the prime minister will lay the foundation stone of a university and district headquarters hospital in the district. He will also announce Sehat Insaf Card for residents of the area as well.

Meanwhile, the district admin has also completed arrangement for a public address of the premier at the Municipal Stadium, with at least 10,000 chairs placed at the venue. The admin has also installed four gates at the venue, including a gate for the VIPs.
