ISLAMABAD: Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad Thursday said Prime Minister Imran Khan was taking strict decisions to control spread of the pandemic and to overcome the economic crisis engulfing the country.

Talking to a private news channel, he claimed that the federal government had taken corrective measures as compared to the Sindh government in order to contain the spread of the disease.

The government has taken acknowledgeable steps keeping in view the health safety of people and economic situation of the country, which was appreciated globally, he mentioned.

He said that all political parties should cooperate with the federal government to contain the spread of coronavirus.

“We need a join strategy to eliminate this natural diseases, otherwise all segments of society, the common people, the government and opposition would be equally vulnerable.”

To fight the disease, we need to shut down politics for some period of time, he emphasised.

Replying to a question, the railways minister said whosoever was involved in the sugar and wheat crisis should get an exemplary punishment.

The PTI-led government has taken a landmark step by exposing the sugar mafia to set an example, he added. He further said the prime minister had launched an inquiry against his own party members, which was one of the major developments.

“Ministers including me, if found involved in corruption, will have to face strict action by the prime minister,” he remarked.
