Corona is a shocking epidemic for the world but it has become a political victim in Pakistan as a blame-game had been started between federal and Sindh governments over the issue, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel.

Instead of doing something practical and showing performance, both the governments—federal Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Sindh government of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) started blaming each other for responsible of increasing cases due to lack of implementation on the standard operating procedures (SOPs). 

On Tuesday, Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry blamed the Sindh government in this regard, saying that the lowest implementation of SOPs took place in Sindh and especially in Karachi.

He further stated that the Sindh government of PPP had failed to implement SOPs while Islamabad was on a great lead regarding this.

Replying to this, Sindh government Spokesman Murtaza Wahab of PPP in an interview with 24News condemned Federal Minister's statement, saying he should refrain from making such statements instead of blaming political leaders on implement SOPs.

PPP Spokesman said that how the graph of cases and deaths went up to danger level in Punjab and Islamabad as compare to Sindh government. He suggest political leaders to play their role for implementing the SOPs and vaccination despite to play a blame-game at this stage.
