Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib Saturday asked the Sindh government to follow national decisions taken through the forum of National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) to curb coronavirus, instead of making unilateral decisions to impose lockdown in the province.
In a tweet, he said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) by doing bad governance in the Sindh had closed down the industries and deprived people of employment.
He said Sindh was having the lowest compliance of pandemic-related standard operating procedures (SOPs).
The representatives of power hungry Sindh government had nothing to do with the hardships of working class and labourers, he added.
Meanwhile, Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar on Saturday said the Sindh government should focus on SOP’s implementation and targeted interventions in high risk settings to control the Covid spread in Karachi.
A blanket lockdown in the economic heart of Pakistan would endanger livelihoods of millions, he tweeted.
He urged everyone to follow the SOPs and get themselves vaccinated, saying while the virus would not end after nine days, the government would not have to go towards a lockdown if people adhered to the health advice.
