Statesman Report

LAHORE: Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan lashed out at the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) on Monday for its “hypocrisy”, alleging that its leaders were exacting revenge on the people of Punjab for making them “politically unemployed”.

Taking to Twitter, the chief minister’s aide lashed out at the PPP and the PDM, saying that on the one hand, Sindh government was closing markets at 6 pm as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus while on the other hand, the PPP was holding jalsas in Multan.

“Such is the extent of [their] hypocrisy that buses filled with people are being brought to Punjab to hold jalsas,” said Dr Firdous Awan.

Turning her guns towards the 11-party alliance, Dr Firdous Awan said that the PDM was promoting a “friendly” environment for the coronavirus to spread.

The PTI leader has lashed out at the PDM for holding its rally in Multan on Monday. While scores of FIRs have been registered against PDM and PPP workers, leaders of the alliance have defiantly told the government that the rally will take place come what may.

The city administration has refused to grant permission for a public gathering planned by the Opposition alliance, citing the rising spread of the coronavirus.
