Overseas Pakistanis Commission (OPC) Commissioner Syed Javed Iqbal Bokhari said we will protect the rights of overseas Pakistanis. OPC DG Ahsan Waheed briefed the chair regarding resolved complaints, the status of referred complaints and other administrative matters. Over 77 complaints have been resolved in the short span of a week and 85 complaints have been referred to the departments and districts concerned for early disposal. The OPC commissioner said that the government under the leadership of the prime minister is committed to providing relief to expatriates. Overseas Pakistanis play a pivotal role in boosting the economy of the country by sending a hefty amount of foreign exchange, he said. All the necessary steps are being taken to make OPC more functional and efficient as overseas Pakistani brothers and sisters have high hopes from this commission, he added. Bokhari also gave directions to the concerned dealing officers to pursue the cases pending in the Lahore High Court and civil court. He also instructed the legal wing to work in close coordination with the Punjab Information and Technology Board (PITB) to develop software.
