LAHORE: Adviser to Chief Minister on Health Khwaja Salman Rafique has visited Ferozewala, Rana Town and Muridke for monitoring dengue surveillance, says a handout.

Moreover, the adviser also visited urban union councils of Muridke on the 2nd day of Eid for dengue surveillance.

He was talking to media men while celebrating Eidul Azha with flood-affected people in Hafizabad and other districts. He offered Eid prayers with flood-hit people in Hafizabad and distributed Eid gifts besides supervising the process of distribution of relief assistance.

The minister visited the residence of Inamullah Khan Niazi and Hafeezullah Niazi and expressed condolences with them over the death of their younger brother, Muslim League MPA Najeebullah Khan Niazi. He also offered Fateha and prayed for the departed soul.
