The minister stated this addressing a reception titled ''Parliamentarians-Civil Society Dialogue'' organized in his honour by MPA Sabeen Gul Khan and Hafeez Ghee and General Mills here. The minister said the government was taking revolutionary steps to improve the lifestyle of ordinary people.

On this occasion, civil society representatives presented their recommendations and participated in question-answer session during which legislators briefed them in depth on government policy of moving forward in light of vision of Quaid-e-Azam.
