LAHORE: Industries and Trade Minister Mian Aslam Iqbal has said, “With determination and unity we will win war against coronavirus.” In a statement issued here on Monday, the minister said joint efforts by the government, institutions and people will eradicate the pandemic and help overcome the crisis.

The minister said the nation salutes the medics and paramedical staff for treating corona patients by standing on forefront. Lockdown was imposed to save the masses from dangers of coronavirus and they should observe it properly. The PTI government is standing with its people in this hour of tribulation and suffering. The Punjab government on the pattern of federal government has also granted relief package to the downtrodden segment of society amounting billions of rupees, the minister said and urged philanthropists to come forward and help the needy. The minister said there is no scarcity of food items in the country and people should not panic and buy commodities beyond their needs. Those indulging in hoarding are criminals of the nation, he regretted.
