The deputy commissioner had replied to a video posted by a Twitter user, showcasing the old woman appealing to the premier to provide her with the basic amenity of a house.
The video shows the woman addressing the PM Imran while requesting to him to provide her a house as she has no other option left after her husband passed away than to live in the woods.
Due to severe poverty, the woman spends her days and nights under the open skies, in the outskirts of Islamabad, near the Bhara Kahu valley.
The user had also urged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA Ali Awan to take necessary measures to help the woman in need.
