PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has warned that it would file cases against opposition leaders if coronavirus spread after the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Peshawar rally.
In a video statement, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Labour and Culture Shaukat Yousafzai responded to the PDM leaders’ remarks.
“The opposition’s behavior is really non-serious. The COVID-19 is spreading across Pakistan to an alarming level. While, the opposition is using masses only to protect its corruption and accountability,” he said.
Shaukat Yousafzai said that he would file cases against the opposition leaders, if coronavirus spread after the Peshawar rally.
The opposition leaders have announced to hold a rally in Peshawar, despite the local administration’s refusal to grant permission amid rising number of coronavirus cases.
