The Punjab government has announced that there will be a holiday in Lahore, the capital city of the province, on April 23, 2024. This means that government offices, schools, colleges, and other educational institutions in Lahore will be closed on that day, which falls on a Tuesday.

A notification issued by the Department of Services and General Administration declared this local holiday in Lahore. It’s important to note that while Lahore is taking a break, the Punjab Civil Secretariat and related offices will still be open as usual.

The decision to close schools and government offices in Lahore is due to the visit of Iranian President Raisi, who will be arriving amidst tight security measures. The holiday aims to ensure a smooth and welcoming environment for the distinguished guest.

Not only Lahore but also Karachi has announced a holiday in light of President Raisi’s visit. The spokesperson for the Department of Services and General Administration emphasized the significance of Raisi’s visit for both sides.

Expect heightened security measures across Lahore to guarantee a secure environment for President Raisi and his delegation during their stay.
