Haleem Adil Sheikh, the Opposition Leader in Sindh Assembly, has said that high-ups of Sindh government were bound to obey the directions of the NCOC with regard to the vaccination and the lockdown to avoid the further spread of the deadly virus.
He said that there was the need to focus on the vaccination of the people and ensure the SOPs were followed by the people instead of making the hard decisions.
He said that there was no need to do politics on such issues pertaining to the lives of the people and lauded the efforts of Prime Minister Imran and Asad Umar for their brilliant efforts to cope with the situations.
The PTI leader said that Murad Ali Shah, who imposed the lockdown without seeking the permission from the officials of NCOC just wanted to stop the smooth sailing of the economic activities in a city like Karachi and this step is nothing but an open threat to the flourishing economy of the country,” he reiterated.
Haleem said that the Sindh chief minister instead of ensuring the vaccination of the people have made the things worse.
He called for setting up more vaccination centers in Karachi and other parts of the province so that people could get themselves vaccinated in a proper manner without get themselves infected by the virus.
He said that Murad Shah took the decision of lockdown like the one which was taken by Indian Prime Minister in occupied Kashmir without knowing the consequences of such decisions on the common people and the economy of the country, like Pakistan.
