Bureau Report


MIRPUR: In the current situation when the spread of coronavirus has become a great threat, the officers and officials of the Department of Auqaf should ensure that the pilgrims who visit the mausoleums of saints must follow the devised SOPs, said the Secretary Auqaf, Sardar Javed Ayoob here on Sunday. He expressed this while addressing the officers of the department of Auqaf in Mirpur.

He said that the officers of the department should search out some sources of department’s income so that its funds could be increased. The current situation caused by the coronavirus spread has badly affected the department’s sources of income. The department is currently facing financial crisis. As it is a semi government department so it is inevitable to increase the sources of income of this department to move it towards a stable situation, he added.

He directed the officers that there should be sign boards for urging pilgrims to follow the SOPs.
