LAHORE:PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to announce provision of special fund for the overseas Pakistanis who cannot bring the dead bodies of corona-hit people to Pakistan. He said overseas Pakistanis were burying corona victims in foreign countries by meeting burial expenses from community donations.
