However, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly’s newly-launched website with systematically arranged and updated information is a pleasant surprise with interesting info-graphics and details about assembly business.
The new website of the assembly was launched on April 11 and contains a treasure trove of updated information about legislative and non-legislative business of the house, its workings and members. "We have attempted to bring uniqueness in every aspect,” said the assembly’s additional secretary and director IT Attaullah Khan while talking to The Express Tribune.
Khan said they have made a basic structure and will work on it further for two to three months to make it a ‘masterpiece’. The site will also offer a virtual tour of the assembly.
