Sindh Govt's Unilateral Actions To Immensely Damage Economy: Fawad
ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 31st Jul, 2021 ) :Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Saturday said the unilateral actions of Sindh Government contrary to the directives of National Command and Control Centre (NCOC) and Federal Government would cause immense damage to the national economy.
The people were concerned over the provincial government's decisions (particularly imposition of the total lockdown in Karachi to curb the rising Covid cases amid the fourth wave of the pandemic), he said in a video statement.
Fawad said Pakistan successfully fought the first three waves of the pandemic with the strategy (to save the lives and livelihoods) and that could not be changed.
He said under Articles 149 and 151 of the Constitution, and the Supreme Court's decision, the provincial governments could not take unilateral decisions, rather they were bound to implement the Federal Government's guidelines and the NCOC's strategy.
The Federation, he said, was cooperating with the provincial governments to curb the pandemic.
" Today, India has become a source of spreading Delta virus in the entire region," he asserted.
