Taking prompt notice of an elderly, extremely poor woman appealing to the government to provide her a shelter, Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised for the destitute lady for due arrangements to be made accordingly.

In a tweet posted on Sunday, Deputy Commissioner Islamabad wrote: The Prime Minister of Pakistan has personally called the lady. She talked to him on video call. Directions have been received. MD Baitul Mal is on site and resolving all the issues Alhamdolillah.

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.
