PM Imran Khan is happy the Pakistan Citizens Portal bagged second place at the World Government Summit

February 13, 2019
 

Prime Minister Imran Khan hailed the success of the Pakistan Citizen Portal app and congratulated the team behind it after it landed second place in the World Government Summit’s mobile application competition.

The government-owned app won second prize at the summit, that recently concluded in Dubai. Prominent government officials and industry leaders from around the world, including PM Khan attended the summit.

The premier tweeted about the recognition the app won at the summit, highlighting that this is the first time a government-run mobile app has achieved such success.

The app was competing against 4,646 other mobile apps from 87 countries. It was announced as the second best app in the Best Citizen Service Delivery Competition.

Indonesia’s Qlue Smart City app topped the competition, while an app from the United States got the third prize.

On October 28 last year, the PM launched the portal with the promise of connecting people to the government. He pledged that the app would bring about a change in Pakistan.

“This is Naya [new] Pakistan,” he had remarked while addressing the launching ceremony. “The old Pakistan had a colonial mindset. The poor had to wait in long queues outside government offices to get their work done, while the rich would just pay and get everything done in few minutes,” he said.

The complaint cell will help the government improve its policy and fight corruption, he said. “We will know what is happening in the country. I will get to know about the performance of my ministers. This is a new era of accountability.”

    Complaint about the citizen portal.

    I have found the citizen portal to be quite ineffective, may be involved in corruption by omission or by commission.

    1. It is a Cheque Bounce Case of Rs 49 Lakhs. FIR was registered in Sept 2013, at Thana Sadar Beroni, Rawalpindi.
    2. I met the SSP, the DIG and the investigating officers many a times..
    3. The criminal was declared as absconder and arrest warrant issued but in spite of repeated requests, Police did nothing for the last 6 years to arrest him and recover my money.
    4. The complaint in Citizen portal was launched in Oct 2018.
    My citizen portal complaint code is PU291018-0127428.
    5. In response to citizen portal’s orders, the police did nothing and the portal displayed twice that the matter was resolved.
    6. Plz find out the persons responsible for this grave crime in police as well as in the citizen portal and give them an exemplary punishment, arrest the culprit and recover my money.
    I am a retired Army officer and if getting the justice for me is impossible then what to talk about helplessness of ordinary people.
    May wrath of Allah Almighty befall on the dishonest, corrupt and faithless people, who obstruct the way of justice. Amin.
