KARACHI : Sindh Minister for Information, Local Government, Housing &Town Planning, Religious Affairs, Forest and Wildlife Syed Nasir Hussain Shah while reacting to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s decision to form a Tiger Force to stop the spread of Caronavirus, said that Imran Khan had already used the name of Tigers on previous occasions, adding that people would certainly voice reservations against the name of this force.
Syed Nasir Shah said that People from all over the country would appreciate if Imran Khan named this force Pakistan Volunteers Force instead of Tigers Force. Provincial Minister for Information said that it was much better that instead of creating a Tiger Force, the distribution of rations amongst the needy people and the creation of awareness amongst the masses should be done by utilizing the services of local government representatives. There were a large number of municipal employees in local bodies to cope with these emergencies, he said.
Nasir Shah also strongly condemned that the local government institutions in Punjab were abolished two years before the completion of their tenure. The provincial Minister for Information said that due to this unfounded step of the Punjab government, the local bodies had been deprived of delivering their essential duties in this critical situation.
In addition, Nasir Shah said that the Sindh government needed the full cooperation of the people to fight a deadly disease like the Coronavirus. Provincial Minister for Information said that if people did not followed the government’s instructions and breached the lock down then there were obvious chances of further problems. The Coronavirus was a deadly disease that had engulfed the entire world, he said.
The Sindh Minister said that Sindh Government was striving to provide help to all the needy people in these testing times in accordance with the directions of Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and the strategy of Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah.
