Sirajul Haq opens isolation ward at JI-run hospital

National

March 31, 2020

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Senator Siraj-ul-Haq has said that while the whole world, including the rich and poor alike was on the verge of the worst humanitarian disaster of its history due to coronavirus the government was displaying a negative approach on this issue.

The government has thrown down the drain a heaven-sent golden opportunity for creating a historic national unity by bringing all sections of society and the political divide on one page, but sadly the rulers were busy doing politics on corona issue after having displayed negligence and mishandling in prevention and relief works, he said while talking to media and workers after inaugurating an isolation ward in the JI-run Surayya Azeem Welfare Hospital Monday evening.

Siraj said that country did not need PTI Tiger Force but badly needed well-equipped volunteers to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. He said that the rulers should have at least displayed a positive national approach by appointing a non-political figure as head of Tiger Force, besides taking the nation into confidence over the prevention strategy.

He expressed sorrow that not only the opposition parties offered their cooperation to the Prime Minister but the JI also offered all its health resources unconditionally for assisting the relief activities but the government had not responded positively and was trying to make its solo flight on corona prevention strategy. He alleged that the government had so far failed to provide necessary protective apparatus to the doctors and paramedical workers fighting against coronavirus on the frontlines. He said the JI workers had left all activities and dedicated themselves to providing rations, masks sanitizers and medicines to the poor and needy.
