“The opportunistic and unemployed politicians of the PDM been blinded in their quest for power,” she said in a statement adding that the PDM is from refraining from repeatedly endangering the lives of people.

“On one side, we are being attacked by the deadly coronavirus while on the other hand, the PDM is providing a conducive environment for the spread of the virus,” she added.

Ms Awan said the PPP has imposed a lockdown in various districts of Sindh due to the coronavirus pandemic and markets are being closed by six o’clock.  

She said it was hypocritical that buses are being filled with workers from Sindh and send to PDM rallies in Multan. “The unemployed faction of PDM is taking revenge from the people of Punjab,” she added.
