700,000 citizens face trouble acquiring passports

The acquisition of passports by common man across the country has become more difficult than usual and long queues in front of the passport offices bear witness to the hardships faced by citizens.

According to details, delay in the issuance of 700,000 passports has given way to acute difficulties for citizens. Official sources claimed that the problem was caused by shortage of lamination papers.

Sources are of the view that the delay is likely to affect the Hajj-pilgrims.

The federal government has constituted a four-member committee that will do away with the possible delay in the issuance of passports for pilgrims.

The members of the committee include one representative each from Religious Affairs Department, Passport Department, FBR and one person representing the government.

    The government should be very sensitive to this issue. My children need their passports on urgent basis so as to reach their school in time, before the session starts.If they didn't get the passports in time,they will lose a precious year of their life… We are so concerned.

    Everyone is concerned only our corrupt rulers are not concerned. They have become senseless and are sleeping without any worry. They are only concerned about making money. They should be banned for life to take part in elections . They really don't deserve it we need new blood to be in the new Government.
