PESHAWAR: Provincial head of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Humayun Khan on Saturday strongly criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan for missing the National Assembly session held to debate and review the situation of the corona virus in the country.
Speaking with reporters here, he said the prime minister also held a portfolio from the Health department, but he did not bother appearing at the National Assembly session which denied his claim about fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

He added that instead of enjoying political points, PPP Chair Bilawal Bhutto Zardari showed maturity because he wanted the nation to defeat Covid-19 through collective efforts and unity. The PPP leader said that it was unfortunate that federal ministers were piling up criticism of the Sindh government instead of appreciating the good work done to help curb the spread of Covid-19. people even in Ramazan, but the authorities at least bothered to take action against them. Criticizing the government for its “wrong policies”, he said people cannot feed their children because of rising prices and lack of livelihood opportunities. He said the rulers were incompetent and they did not have the ability to run the country.
