PDM’s Peshawar rally clear example of opposition’s dual standards: Asad

ISLAMABAD – Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar said that Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) Peshawar rally is a clear example of the opposition’s dual standards on Saturday.

In a series of tweet, Asad Umar said that Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) led government imposed complete lockdown in Azad Kashmir for two weeks and Pakistan Poeples’ Party (PPP) government enforced smart lockdown in four districts of Karachi.

Asad Umar, who also heads the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC), said both parties are insisting to hold public gathering in Peshawar and one cannot find a clearer example of double standards than this.

He said Peshawar’s COVID-19 positivity ratio was 13.39% yesterday and 202 patients were in critical care. Out of these, 50 are on low flow oxygen, 134 on high flow and 18 on ventilators, he said.

Asad Umar further added that 14 new critical patients were admitted to hospital yesterday. PDM response: we will be safe on the stage so who cares what happens to citizens, the federal minister commented.
