The Prime Minister said Sindh has been given the maximum relief funds under the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme.

Imran Khan said overseas Pakistanis have a major contribution in the country’s economy, and said the government is taking steps to resolve problems and issues being faced by the diaspora.
Referring to his conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, he said Iran has decided to continue restrictions on gatherings, opening of schools and colleges amid coronavirus pandemic.
