Saudi crown prince Muhammad bin Sulman to stay at PM House
ISLAMABAD: In an unprecedented move, the Pakistan government has decided to reserve the Prime Minister House for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s stay during his upcoming visit to the country later this month.
Sources privy to the development told The Express Tribune that the renovation work at the PM House is currently underway to prepare it for the royal stay.
Prince Mohammad will be the first state guest to stay at the government building reserved for the prime minister of Pakistan.
It may be mentioned that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had announced converting the PM House into a public university after coming into power last year.However,
last month,it decided to task a federal commission to review the decision to convert the sprawling estate of the Prime Minister House into a national university. The move could see the plan of turning the PM House into a national university face some delays.
The Saudi crown prince’s office will be made ready in‘working condition’two days before his arrival,scheduled for February 17, in the federal capital,
said the sources,adding that important refurbishments were being carried out in this connection at the PM House.
