As Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar contracted Coronavirus on Monday, Firdous Ashiq Awan, aide to Punjab’s CM, said the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was to blame for his infection.
Taking to Twitter, Dr Firdous slams the Opposition’s alliance, blaming them for being wreckless and holding jalsas at a time when the entire country was gripped by the second wave of the pandemic.
“The results of PDM’s activities of spreading coronavirus through jalsas has been received. Despite taking all precautions, Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar has contracted coronavirus. All of us are praying for his speedy recovery,” she said.

The government has appealed to the Opposition to suspend its jalsas as coronavirus cases across the country rise.
On the other hand, the Opposition has refused to suspend its political gatherings and rallies, instead calling on Prime Minister Imran Khan to step down before they launch a long march to Islamabad to force him to go home.
