Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz has said the in the prevailing situation of resurge of Coronavirus cases in the country, putting peoples’ lives at stake for meager political gain is political persecution.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz said playing with the lives of people and political workers exposes the mentality of opportunist political gangs.

The Minister said the criminals who ruined the economy of the country and targeted national institutions are now bent on the effect on the health and livelihood of people.

Holding meetings despite court orders is tantamount to violating the law. PEMRA should not be allowed to broadcast such illegal and dangerous activities for the health of the people. The health and safety of the people is our top priority, said Faraz. They want to affect both public health and employment with their irresponsible behavior. People will be held accountable for corruption.

Earlier today Prime Minister PM Imran Khan said that Pakistan will be compelled to go into a complete lockdown if the coronavirus cases continue to surge across the country at the same rate and the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will be responsible for the consequences.

While taking to his Twitter handle, the prime minister blamed the PDM for “deliberately endangering lives and livelihoods” by holding jalsas across the country with coronavirus cases in Pakistan on the rise.
