Special Assistant to CM on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan termed PDM a band of the corrupt alligators, which could consume everything but exhale nothing.
Dr Firdous said the PDM is entrapped in a blind alley and it will, even, swallow the resignations at the most appropriate moment. It’s striving hard for a political face-saving, she said. The PDM leadership, which endangered scores of lives in corona pandemic, faced exemplary humiliation at Minar-e-Pakistan. Those who are holding meetings, despite corona situation, have been fully exposed. Meanwhile, 30 patients died and 535 new cases were reported in Punjab during the last 24 hours. The total number of patients in Punjab is 128673 while the number of patients in Lahore is 62837, she concluded.
Meanwhile, the SACM said that in line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Universal Health Care program has been launched across the country and under the program so far health cards have been distributed to 5.2 million families. The provision of best healthcare facilities to the people is a priority agenda of the Punjab government.
Talking to media at Jinnah Hospital here, Dr. Firdous said that the government is fully committed to provide best medical facilities to the people. She lauded the efforts and support of Gohar Ijaz Trust in providing medical facilities to people at Jinnah Hospital and said that Gohar Ijaz Trust is a role model of public-private partnership which is not only providing free medical facilities to the people but also treating patients like a family. She said that the Punjab government will further enhance such public-private partnership programs in other hospitals for provision of best medical facilities to the people. She said that the government intends to hold a nursing convention soon in which a workable strategy will be worked out.
Later talking to media, Dr Firdous said that PDM is a band of corrupt alligators which could consume everything but couldn’t exhale anything. Responding to Shehbaz- Bilawal meeting, she said that the meeting has buried the narrative of the Calibri Queen. Bilawal Bhutto sidelined PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif and set up a political theater on the desire of Maryam Nawaz, she added. She said Shehbaz Sharif did not give any importance to Bilawal during the visit and disassociate himself from PDM narrative. Bilawal has now become a witness to the deep rifts in the Sharif family, she further said.
She said how the Calibri Queen could unite 11 parties of PDM when she couldn’t maintain the unity in her own family. Dr. Firdous said that opposition is responsible for the increase in corona cases because opposition lured the innocent people for Lahore public meeting. She said that PDM leaders’ demand for Prime Minister’s resignation show that they are politically immature.
