Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on Sunday said “We want to see Punjab, KP and Balochistan prospering, but Sindh should also not be neglected.”

Shah said he has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan complaining that the federal government has ignored projects for Sindh in the public development program.

This he said while talking to the media after inaugurating another vaccination hall for COVID vaccination at Expo Centre Karachi. Shah said Sindh government is going to relax COVID-19 restrictions.

He said that the pandemic is not over yet and urged the masses to continue strict adherence to the health-related SOPs. “The COVID death ratio is lower and recovery rate is higher in Sindh.”

The CM said that the province is vaccinating 100,000 people per day and they are planning to increase the number up to 200,000. Thanking the front health line workers, fighting the pandemic, he informed that as many as 90pc of the health workers have been vaccinated against the COVID-19.

“The salaries of government employees will be seized if they deny receiving vaccine jab,” he repeated. He also urged the business community to get themselves vaccinated and follow SOPs to contain the virus spread.
