LAHORE – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday has appealed the nation to act on the directives issued by the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in order to curb the spread of coronavirus.Addressing a press conference in Lahore, the Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) said that Pakistan is facing the biggest challenge of coronavirus but we have to fight it by keeping themselves clean.
We should avoid doing politics on the current scenario and also refrain from using such words which can divide the nation, he requested.
While putting forward demands in the wake of prevailing situation, Shehbaz Sharif has requested the government to provide 10,000 safety kits to the doctors and make coronavirus tests free of cost for the common men. Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has extended prayers to the nation, he told.
The PML-N president has hoped that the government will take timely steps to contain the virus. We have to fight this disease and deteriorating economy at the same time, he stated.
The federation should decrease the oil prices by Rs 70 to Rs 80 and financially help the daily wagers. There must be sufficient number of ventilators at hospitals to handle the situation, he went on to say.
Meanwhile, Special Assistant on Media Dr. Shahbaz Gill reacted to PML-N president’s presser and called his demands as ‘point scoring’. He asked that how can those who have ruled the country for five times say such things.
Shehbaz Sharif is only doing politics on this matter, he blamed.
The special assistance further told that the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has already announced Ehsaas Program for the relief of the people.
