Government is fully focusing on relief and rescue operation in the air crash incident.

I would express deep grief and sorrow over the loss of precious human lives in PIA plane crash in Karachi. The government is fully focusing on relief and rescue operations in the crash incident. This is highly tragic and sad incident before Eid-ul-Fitr and all prays of Prime Minister Iman Khan and his government are with the passengers, crew members, and their families. The Federal government is in contact with the Sindh Government and both are making all-out efforts in rescue operation. Prime Minister Imran Khan is also in contact with the Sindh Government and Civil Aviation Authority and giving necessary directions in this regard. An information desk has been established to have a contact with families of the passengers on board the plane. The incumbent government is also taking concrete measures to facilitate the marginalized segments of the society in wake of Covid-19 pandemic. Prime Minister Imran Khan directed to ease the lockdown only to facilitate the downtrodden resourced people of the country. It is now responsibility of the people to observe all precautionary measures to stay safe. I appeal to the people to follow all SOPs properly to contain the spread of virus .Pakistan is a developing country and cannot afford ceasing of economic activities for a long period of time.
