In line with the directions of the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad (MCI) is taking all out measures to ensure availability of basic civic amenities in the high populated residential sectors of the Federal Capital to bring these sectors at par with the posh sectors.
