According to the Minister for Planning, Development, and Special initiatives, Asad Umar, the Government has taken concrete measures to bring the rural areas of Islamabad at par with its urban areas through the provision of all basic facilities to the people. Prime Minister Imran Khan has also constituted Islamabad’s master plan commission which is working on a plan to end the difference between rural and urban areas in terms of urban facilities.
The government has also ensured a 50% quota of the residents of Islamabad in federal jobs from grade 1 to 15. Many development projects in the federal capital have already been completed including Rawal Dam Interchange, G-7 underpass, Burma bridge, Kiani bridge, Malal bridge, and the PWD Interchange.
Poor quality of life and low basic facilities of rural areas highlights the need for development in the rural sector. The development of rural areas is important for the growth and prosperity of Pakistan. The Islamabad master plan commission has planned to reconstruct around 50 to 55% of rural areas of Islamabad by June 2022
