In a video message issued on Tuesday, Bilawal Bhutto said that it is the responsibility of every government to protect its people during the times of crisis.

“Coronavirus is spreading like wildfire across the world. Since there is no treatment or vaccine for this disease, we had to take strict measures to contain its spread and impose lockdown in province. I request you all to cooperate with Sindh government during these crucial times,” he said.

He further said that Sindh government would cooperate in every possible aspect with people during lockdown.

“If you get sick, we will get you tested. If you need grocery, contact us and we will provide you with all essentials. I also request our elite class to help marginalized sections of society during these testing times,” he said.

Bilawal said that Sindh government has also strictly told all organizations not to terminate any employee during the period of lockdown. He said that all political parties would cooperate with federal government to contain the spread of Coronavirus.

“Coronavirus has no treatment and vaccine, therefore, Sindh government has taken strict measures to protect the life of the people and I appeal to the people to cooperate Sindh government over lockdown decision,” he said. He continued, “If you get ill during lockdown contact Sindh government so that you can be screened and if you need ration during the period called government, the ration will be given on your doorstep.”

“People feared during the lockdown they can be deprived of jobs, however, no one can shed your job and even owners are bound to pay the salary of the lockdown period,” he clarified.
