PPP chairman forms awareness committee about coronavirus: Info minister

March 27, 2020

KARACHI:Sindh Minister for Information Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said Friday that although the directives had been issued to the law enforcement agencies to treat the people gently, but the people should also follow the government’s directives regarding the lockdown and cooperate with security personnel.

“If people ignore the directives issued by the government regarding the lockdown, then there was no other way left except for taking action against them according to the law,” he said in a statement. Shah said that the decision of the lockdown had been taken by the Sindh government in a state of utmost compulsion.

He said: “The people should not consider it as a curfew, as it is rather “Care for You”, indeed. By staying at their homes, people could protect not only themselves but their families and others from being infected with coronavirus. Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah was not only extremely worried, but he was also taking all the necessary decisions swiftly to protect the people from being affected by the coronavirus.”

The minister said that the Chief Minister Sindh had repeatedly made it clear that the government did not want to adopt any drastic measure, but owing to some lawlessness and careless of people, the government could need to adopt further drastic measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus. He said the government would not hesitate to do so. He said the government was very concerned about people working on daily wages before taking drastic measures, and for which they were arranging to provide ration to their homes with the help of welfare organizations.

Shah said that without the help of these welfare organizations, delivering ration to every needy person was a difficult task indeed, if not impossible. He said that Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was also very concerned about distribution of ration among the needy and creating awareness among the people about the Coronavirus, and he had also instructed Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah in this regard.

He said that in the light of Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s instructions, the Chief Minister Sindh was busy taking necessary steps and adopting all the right measures day and night to reach every single needy person in these testing times.

Shah said that Chief Minister Sindh was presiding over the meetings with the concerned institutions and individuals on a daily basis, adding that these meetings discussed in detail what further needed to be done to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and about the necessary steps to be taken to provide ration to the people at their homes.

The info minister said that in order to create awareness amongst the people regarding the spread of Coronavirus, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had formed an awareness committee comprising senior members of the PPP. The minister said that he had also been included in the awareness committee on which he thanked Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for trusting him.

He said that this committee would ensure to adopt every possible necessary measure to create awareness amongst the masses and to fulfill the trust of Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said that the response of the people of the province on the appeal of Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and on the actions and directives of Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah was also highly commendable.
