Meanwhile, the number of oxygen beds and ventilators is being increased in hospitals, he said.

The CM assured that development work will be done according to the priorities of the parliamentarians in their constituencies adding that the people will be best served by the government, as a team, because public service is the main agenda of the PTI. Meanwhile, the past rulers ignored the fundamental problems of the people and continued to enjoy the luxuries of power and authority while leaving the people in the lurch, he regretted and pointed out the incumbent government has given prime focus to resolve the issues faced by the people. The PTI government believes in the philosophy of composite development, the CM added and pointed out the health system is overloaded due to an increase in the number of corona patients. The government is utilizing every possible resource to treat the patients but the people should also adopt a careful attitude because the situation is worsening. More strict measures will have to be taken to overcome the corona situation and the people should continue observing SOPs for their safety from this virus, he advised. Usman Buzdar said the PDM has ended in a fiasco and the opposition is reaping what it has sown. The opposition made every effort to put the national interests at stake but the credibility of those, involved in negative politics, has been eroded, concluded the CM.
