They said the attitude of the staff with the card holders visiting the BISP offices was not proper. Even there are no separate waiting rooms for women at the BISP offices. People visiting the offices for getting their monthly stipends and renewal of cards were not entertained on time and kept waiting for days.

  1. The MNA and his brother would be missing Shahzada Mohi Uddin, he was a shrewd politician and diplomat. If he was around in that meeting, no one would have the courage to speak against him or the party. APML is now doomed to fail.
