He asserted that the aim of the ministry is that personnel are taken care of the same way they took care of the county.
“Our aim is that all of you should be taken care of in the same way you all have taken care of the security of the country. Despite this, if you people have any problem somewhere, then a helpline has also been arranged for that,” he said.
