The open court session served as a testament to Dr. Abdali’s proactive approach and willingness to confront challenges head-on. As attendees expressed their appreciation for the initiative, they echoed a unanimous call for future sessions to sustain this dialogue between the government and the governed.

Dr. Nasar Ansar Abdali’s open court in Kotli transcended mere rhetoric, embodying a tangible manifestation of governmental accountability and citizen empowerment.
