Bilawal Accuses PTI Govt Of Lowering Covid Testing Under ‘Conspiracy’
Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto has accused the government of deliberately lowering the number of tests for the coronavirus infections in the country.
“At this time, wherever the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) exists, it is deliberately carrying out lower number of tests, and, I cannot explain how much harm this is causing to the citizens of the country.”
“If Imran Khan continues to serve as the prime minister, then it does not only pose a threat to our democracy and economy, but also to every Pakistani’s life and health,” Bilawal said. “Look at what the Transparency International is reporting about the government,” he said, adding “they are saying this government is the most corrupt in the country’s history.”
He went on to say that [PM] Imran Khan is the one who has taken advantage of every amnesty scheme, including the one in the regime of Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf.
On Sunday, Nadeem Chaudhry, an Islamabad-based reporter covering the health sector for the past 20 years, said the number of cases has not started to reduce, rather the government has reduced its testing capacity. He added that by reducing the testing capacity, the government is allegedly trying to give an impression that the smart lockdown strategy has been effective.
