Govt’s selective lockdown policy to remove pressure from labourers


Islamabad, 17 May 2020 – Mudasser Chudhary:

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Senator Shibli Faraz says the government is opting selective lockdown policy to remove pressure from daily-wage workers and labour community.

He said complete lockdown is not a feasible option for poor segment of the society.

He said that the people are exhibiting non-cooperating behaviour during lockdown.

The minister said that the government could go for strict measures to implement SOPs for protecting the people from coronavirus pandemic.

To a question about accountability process, he said PTI government came into power for carrying out accountability against corrupt elements to eliminate corruption from the society.

Shibli Faraz made it clear that PTI government had zero tolerance on corruption issue.
