Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan has set up the Corona Relief Fund in view of the corona virus situation in the country.
Addressing the nation on the situation of Corona virus across the country, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the world is currently fighting the Corona virus and China was the most successful in this fight. If Pakistan had the same situation as China, we would have locked down the country, our problem is that 25% of our population is living below the poverty line, if we lock down and think of these poor. Lockdown would not have been successful if you had not.
He said that any war can only be won with the people. India locked down without thinking, today Prime Minister Narendra Modi has apologized to the people, people in India have taken to the streets because of hunger. It is a disease that does not differentiate between rich and poor, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also got corona virus.
He said that we have to fight this war strategy by looking at the situation, we cannot make tough decisions like lockdown, it cannot be fought only by resources. We have given a $ 8 billion relief package to the US. The relief package is $ 2 billion. Imran Khan set up the Prime Minister’s Corona Relief Fund to deal with Corona and said that there would be no question of depositing money in the Corona Relief Fund.
