LAHORE - Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar has said that the opposition parties want to call an anti-government APC to fulfill their aspirations of stopping the accountability process.

The Governor assured the delegation to take up the issue of restoration of Portuguese embassy and visa section in Pakistan with the Foreign Minister.

He said that ever since PTI assumed power, the opposition had called dozens of all-party conferences. He said that the opposition wanted to call the conference for their protection and to bring an end to the accountability process initiated by the PTI government.

The Governor Punjab said that the nation was still suffering from the consequences of the corrupt and mal-intended policies of the rulers of the past.  He said that Pakistan was facing economic challenges due to coronavirus crisis but despite those challenges the federal and the Punjab governments had provided tax free budget to the people. He said that the government was trying to give more relief to the people.

Ch Sarwar said that the threat of the pandemic had not been overcome as yet. He said that there was a looming danger of further intensification of the disease in July and therefore the people should make the preventive measures more effective to prevent spread of coronavirus in the coming days.
