ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again asked the Opposition parties to call off their rallies as the coronavirus situation in the country is worsening day by day. The prime minister said this while chairing a meeting of government spokespersons and party leaders on Friday, Khyber News reported.
In response, the Opposition alliance has categorically rejected the government’s demands and vowed to hold rallies all over Multan if it is stopped from holding jalsa at Qila Qasim Bagh on November 30. PM Imran said the rallies of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to protect their leaders’ looted wealth make no political difference, but the public is being left at the mercy of the virus, while their own leader is hiding in London.
He said that the rest of the world is engaged in fighting coronavirus but the Opposition is making a mockery of the nation by holding public rallies and termed the Opposition’s movement as anti-people.
The premier once again rejected the impression of recognition of Israel being under consideration and said that it is out of the question until the Palestinian issue is resolved.
