It was observed that many elected MPA's and MNA's of opposition did not visit their constituencies to monitor the situation, she further said.
Responding to a query, she said locust control program was formulated and Federal Minister for National Food Security, Fakhar Imam would chair meetings with other members, as populated areas could not be sprayed, she added.
She informed that two pilots embraced martyrdom while performing their duties to eradicate locust due to plane crash, adding that 27 MNSFR planes were out of order as the previous governments not repaired these planes.
