He said that this force would not only help deserving persons coming to Ehsaas centres for emergency cash but would also ensure that masses get discounted items from utility stores.

It is very unfortunate that provincial Government has declined to adopt Tiger Force and utilize its services, he added and said that Prime Minister has entrusted him with the responsibility to lead this force and he would do his utmost to utilize it in a befitting manner. He said that the registered persons of this force have no political background and they are only concerned with serving their fellow citizens.

He said that after refusal from provincial Government other political parties would be consulted for ensuring better utilization of this force. On a question of imposition of Governor rule in the province, he said that till to date there is no truth in the news. I am also viewing this rumor like you are on tv channels, he said.

On a query regarding differences between Federal and Provincial Governments, Governor Sindh said that for ensuring better services to the masses of Sindh, Provincial Government must coordinate with the Federal Government, if I have a query or matter, I call Chief Minister Sindh so why provincial Government is reluctant to contact Prime Minister of Pakistan to present their case in front of him, he added.

He said that Prime Minister is saying from the beginning that Pakistan could not afford complete lockdown as our ground realities are totally different from specially developed countries. We have a huge number of persons who work on daily wages and they are badly affected during the lockdown, he added.

Governor Sindh said that Federal, provincial Governments, NGOs cannot fulfill the requirements of ration to 100 % affected people and phase-wise easing of lockdown is the only solution for their grievances.
