K-P Launches E-Razakar Programme to Facilitate Citizens During Lockdown

The provincial government launched the e-razakar program for recruiting voluntary workers with a province-wide lockdown due to the novel coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).

Chief Minister Mahmood Khan said that the system will be running under the Provincial Relief Department in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) media. The software would benefit the people by solving their problems at the door.

As per the details, the provincial government has also launched a toll-free e-Razakar helpline. KP citizens can dial 1700 to get access to:

  • Information related to Coronavirus
  • Free medical advice
  • Pharmacy & psychiatric services at their doorsteps
  • Women & children protection
  • Municipal Services
  • Civil Defence services
  • Can talk to representatives of 1122, PDMA & PMRU

In a separate press briefing at the Information Cell in the Civil Secretariat on Monday, Adviser to K-P CM on Information Ajmal Wazir advised Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali should set aside politics since Prime Minister Imran Khan had seriously considered his suggestions in every meeting.

Wazir also rejected as ‘fake’ a report that some 1,100 pilgrims from Iran had gone missing. He stated that pilgrims from Iran had been sent to two quarantine centres in the province, one at Darazinda in Dera Ismail Khan and Duranpur in the provincial capital. All the pilgrims had tested negative except some who were being treated, he added.
