KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Information Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said yesterday that everything that Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said in his press conference was based on facts.
The PPP chairman spoke not only about the Sindh but for the whole country, he said while addressing a press conference. He said that coronavirus was a problem not only of Sindh but of the entire country. Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani was also present during the press conference.
Shah said that businesses were not more important than people’s lives. The provincial minister said that the only reason for the spread of the coronavirus across the country was the incompetence of the federal government. “Because federal ministers are constantly misleading the people, we have to respond them,” he said. “From the beginning of the spread of the coronavirus to the present day, we have been trying our best to save lives without wasting time on nonsense, but the federal ministers and federal spokespersons always try to distract our focus,” he said.
Shah further said that Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari from the very first day, when the first case of coronavirus emerged in the country, asked Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah to cooperate with the Prime Minister. The provincial minister said that whenever the federal ministers were asked about their performance, they would start talking about baseless things, and whenever Sindh government talked about its rights, they would start talking about the 18th amendment.
He said that if anyone wanted to judge the seriousness of the federal government, it would be enough to test their seriousness that when the first case of Coronavirus appeared in the country on February 26, there was silence and till March 13 prime minister just tweeted once over this serious issue. Shah said that the federal government also did not take any initiative regarding the closure of mosques during the lockdown.
