LAHORE, Nov 22 (DNA): Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar has said
that the government is not afraid of opposition rallies and is asking
them to stay away from rallies due to the risk of Corona spike.

The opposition wants to halt the transparent accountability process in

right now is inflation, eradication of corruption and good governance,
not the opposition or its rallies. The country needs solidarity but the
opposition is trying to create chaos and Pakistan cannot afford such a

Pakistan army and the government are on the same page and all
institutions are working together for the development and prosperity of
the country. He said that no one else could hold such a large number of
rallies like PTI did under the leadership of Imran Khan.

The government is not intimidated by opposition’s rallies. The
government is established and will remain so. Governor Punjab Chaudhry
Mohammad Sarwar said that due to the rapid spread of Corona, we are
asking the opposition to give up the politics of rallies but if they
think that they will overthrow the government through rallies then this
is their dream that will never be fulfilled.

In view of the Corona Pandemic, it is in the interest of the nation that
the opposition should refrain from engaging in protest politics.

He said that due to the successful economic policies of the government,
Pakistan is moving in the right direction and the future of Pakistan is
in safe hands. The government is taking all possible steps to address
issues including inflation and I am sure that the government under the
leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan will rid the country of
inflation as well as strengthen the country economically.
