New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistan has installed biometric machines outside toilets in its ministries for top ranking officers. This is in contrast to promises made by Prime Minister Imran Khan during his election campaign to end the “VVIP Culture”.

The VVIP toilets in the Ministry of Industries and Production are restricted to officers above a certain level. However, officers of the same level in other ministries can also use these facilities, reports Express Tribune.  

The report, quoting sources, said that these toilets are for the exclusive use of officers of additional secretary rank or above. The employees and staff below the rank of additional secretary are peeved by the move, as toilets in their blocks do not even have basic toiletries, such as soaps.

There has been some criticism against the extravaganza in Pakistan, as netizens cited the bad state of public facilities in the country.
