The hotel card is present along with the bill, now let’s see what action the management can take on it.
A number of users lodged similar complaints. Shortly afterwards, the Twitter account of the Chief Secretary Punjab was informed that “Deputy Commissioner Rawalpindi has investigated the matter and the hotel has been sealed.”
