Sarwar warns of tough decisions if accord not followed at mosques

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Friday said tough decisions would have to be taken to save the lives of the people if the 20 points agreed in connection with holding daily prayers at mosques were not implemented.

The religious leaders would have to show leadership and ensure implementation of the 20-point framework, Sarwar told a press conference.

Rejecting the impression created by some circles that the coronavirus pandemic has been controlled, the governor said Prime Minister Imran Khan and others had been saying that the next three to four weeks were very critical, as he urged the people to stay indoors at their homes.

Citing the example of the United Kingdom where the healthcare professionals are facing a shortage of personal protection equipment (PPE), Sarwar said if the developed countries were going through such period then it would be impossible for Pakistan to tackle the situation.

The doctors in Punjab and Sindh are already warning about a scenario where people may be treated on streets, he warned.
