Islamabad, 11 June 2020 – Mudasser Chudhary:

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz says stern action would be taken against those found responsible for creating artificial shortage of petrol in the country, after an inquiry.

He said the petroleum supply is likely to be fully restored today.

The Information Minister said the budget session of the National Assembly, to be held tomorrow, would be participated by around 86 members.

He said the National Assembly has already been in session since Monday with all the standard operating procedures in place.

Replying to question, he said Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has supported all decisions taken by the National Coordination Committee regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

He said the country could not afford lockdown for a long time due its economic situation.

He said even the rich and financially strong countries are also easing lockdown in order to turn the wheels of their economies.

The Minister urged people to fully follow the SOPs issued by the government to stem the spread of coronavirus.
