After the heavy downpour in the capital leading to urban flooding, President Arif Alvi extended his concern for the people of Islamabad.

Taking to Twitter, Alvi tweeted, “I am confident that Islamabad’s administration are doing their job well but if need be, I am ready with my boat.โ€

He was responding to a tweet where Alvi can be seen rowing a boat in Karachi in 2017 when he was an MNA.


Twitterati extended support to the president.

A Twitter user wrote, “He is following the steps of Ex-Chief Minister (CM) of Punjab.

Our President is also a ‘memer’.

Following two deaths and widespread flooding in the federal capital, Islamabad Commissioner Amir Ahmed has ordered a probe in this regard.

Meanwhile, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) said all officers and employees have been asked to remain on high alert for the next week in light of the heavy downpour.
