Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided not to raise gas prices and not to put extra burden on the people in gas. While Imran Khan created Prime Minister Corona Relief Tigers Force to facilitate the people in the context of the Coronavirus and to provide ration to the poor at home and announces the establishment of a special fund, saying that the war against Corona will unite the nation. Provinces alike say that Goods Transport will be allowed throughout the country including Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan to transport goods. While the restrictions on passenger vehicles will be allowed, food factories and associated industries will also be allowed to operate.

There is free medialism for democracy. If any of my ministers is making money, then there is malicious criticism instead of constructive criticism brought to us by the media. There was no misconduct in keeping visitors in Tufan, but there was no proper setup. During the campaign against Corona, the hospital will also fix it. I will tell the police to release those arrested for the Lockdown violation. He expressed these views while talking to senior journalists here on Friday. On the occasion, the Prime Minister was silent on the question of meeting with Opposition Leader Shahbaz Sharif and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and did not respond. In his talk, Imran Khan said that the US has given a $ 2 billion package to its economy and the people.

He said that in the event of a complete lockdown, the poorest of the poor were concerned that the decision to end the ban on Goods Transport was taken to remedy the shortage of food items in the country. The Tigers Force will be announced on March 31, there should be no shortage of food items, food shortages can lead to chaos. I was worried that if we went straight into fifth gear in lockdown, there would be a lot of problems for the poor and the day laborer. Coronavirus has not spread in the country as it has done in other countries, there is no guarantee and maybe two weeks later, the cases should be over, the nation should be prepared. And we must prepare for the worst case scenario, there is nothing lacking. No need to panic the public was given the impression that the government did not understand what was happening; in fact it was not so that Pakistan did not experience such a situation. I would request our Overseas Pakistanis to deposit money in the fund so that the pressure on the rupee will end. The Prime Minister said that when China performed a lockdown, people brought food to their homes, in Pakistan; it is difficult to deliver food to people at home, we do not have such infrastructure as the daily income earners are in great distress. At that time, any attempt to divide the people will be harmed.

Meanwhile, a special briefing was briefed by Dr Ferdous Ashiq, media briefing after the meeting of the Energy Committee of the Cabinet chaired by Imran Khan. The Prime Minister has instructed the Minister of Energy not to impose gas prices on consumers. Under the IMF agreement, the process of raising gas prices should be delayed. Reduce the burden on the public with regard to gas prices in advance. To keep gas prices stable, Sui Southern Gas Limited (SNGPL) and Sui Northern Gas Limited (SSGPL) are confident in their companies regarding grassroots and gas theft while ensuring grass cutting. And ensure effective action.
