The CM announced that after setting up of 1000-bed hospital at Ferozepur Road in the city, more general hospitals would be constructed in other places as well.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was only protecting their vested interests and corruption, he said.

The opposition was working on the spread of the COVID-19 agenda.

The increase in corona outbreak had been witnessed in the cities where the PDM’s rallies took place, he said. The opposition was responsible for the increasing number of coronavirus cases, the chief minister added.

Usman Buzdar said the government would complete its tenure as it had full support of people. The development and progress of the country and welfare of people was the commitment of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership, he mentioned.

Resignations would never be tendered even after the passage of December 31 because the PDM had become habitual of giving dates, he said. They would never give resignation because they know well that there would be by-election on vacant seats, he added.
