Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination has decided to enlarge the size of pictorial health warning of smoking on cigarette packs to 85%. Saira Afzal Tarar, minister of National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination, claims that Pakistan is the third country to implement an 85% size for the pictorial warning, after Thailand and India. But what about the imported cigarette packs, which are available in market and don’t have any pictorial health warning? Will the Minister of National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination take action on illegal smuggling, import or sale of cigarette packs?
