On Thursday, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif unveiled a plan calls for the use of public service stores to ensure continuity of food supplies in the various districts.
Former Punjab CM said “Citizens should use phone lines and mobile phone applications to order food and medicines to their homes. The distribution of these items should be carried out through Pakistan Post and Railways.”
He added that “Baitul Maal, Benazir Income Support Programme, and other subsidies should be used by the government to bring down the prices of essential items across the country.”
Further he said, “The relief package announced by the government to deal with the coronavirus crisis is incomplete. The concerns of the opposition regarding the package must be addressed.”
Sharif suggested that the government also provide the personnel of the armed forces, as well as other government employees working during the crisis, with protective suits and other items so they can stay safe.
Paid homage to all soldiers, doctors, nurses, medical staff, government employees, and other public servants who were risking their lives to perform their duties during the crisis.
