Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan Thursday directed to impose a complete ban on the use of polythene bags across the province and ensure strict implementation of the decision by all district administrations. He expressed these views while addressing a meeting of the Provincial Cabinet at Civil Secretariat Peshawar.
He directed to take concrete steps to control food prices and curb stockpiling in the province. He called upon the concerned agencies to be active round the clock for cleanliness especially during Eid-ul-Azha while celebrating Eid with simplicity to avoid the possible dangers of the spread of Corona epidemic. The CM said, “We have been quite successful in curbing the widespread spread of the Corona pandemic through effective measures and public support, but we cannot afford to be negligent in this regard.”
Provincial Ministers, Provincial Advisors, Special Assistants, Chief Secretary and Administrative Secretaries attended the meeting. The meeting included 6 agenda items and 12 additional agenda items for thorough debate.
