Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says the Sindh Government would not be allowed to impose a complete lockdown in the province as the Federal Government’s policy in that regard is crystal clear.

He said this in a statement while commenting on the Sindh Government’s announcement regarding imposition of the lockdown from Friday.

He said the Supreme Court has also ruled that the provinces could not make unilateral decisions in that regard

Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said the option of complete lockdown is not available to any province. The policy regarding the Covid pandemic was given by the Federation, National Command and Control Centre and the provinces are bound to implement it.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan was of the view that the complete lockdown would severely affect the working class, and daily wage earners.
