Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Social Welfare Dr. Hisham Inamullah has issued instructions to address the problems of the Working Women Hostel, Hayatabad, Peshawar.

He narrated that the women living in the hostel will also have to pay their arrears so that the hostel management can run smoothly.

Provincial Minister for Social Welfare Dr Hisham Inamullah took note of the statements published in the newspapers regarding the Working Women Hostel in Hayatabad and directed the Social Welfare Department to resolve all the grievances.

In this regard, Habib Afridi, Director, Department of Social Welfare, said that after the approval of the Cabinet, we have maintained regular SOPs for the hostel under which it is being run.

The Room rent is fixed for government employees and every room is allotted to two girls.

He said that accommodation has been arranged but some of the women living in hostels occupy the same room and do not pay the rent in full.

Similarly, those who use air conditioners in hostel rooms have to pay their electricity bill but some of the women residents of the hostel also refuse to pay their bills. —Staff Reporter
