PTI’s Gandapur again found violating Covid SOPs and …..
Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur, who has developed the habit of breaking rules, organised a public gathering at Dera Ismael Khan on Tuesday in a clear-cut violation of the coronavirus-related standard operating procedures (SOPs), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Not only this, but he also taught his minor son the skills to drive a car.
And when somebody objected to it, the minister replied that when it was his area, his car and his son, why somebody should object to it.
The district administration, only a few days ago, had imposed section 144 to prevent the gathering of five or more people in view of the pandemic.
But Gandapur openly flouted the law, and the authorities acted as mute spectators.
This is not the first time that the federal minister has been found breaching the law.
Only a few days ago, he was seen in a video with his son sitting on the driving seat, while he was sitting next to him and enjoying the ride.
Not only that, he continued to make the footage of his son’s driving too.
Gandapur’s act could have led to a disaster. But he appeared to be least bothered. And, therefore, he was subjected to severe criticism by people on the social media.
The question is when ministers and other government officials will have scant regard for the SOPs, how a common man can be expected to follow the government instructions.
