PM Imran Khan lashes out against PDM leadership

ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is playing reckless politics with people’s safety by holding rallies despite the surge in coronavirus cases.

Premier while re-tweeting a tweet of Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar, said "the same PDM members who had wanted a strict lockdown and criticized me earlier now playing reckless politics with people’s safety. They are even defying court orders and holding a jalsa when cases are rising dramatically."

Earlier, Asad Umar said PDM Peshawar rally is a clear example of the opposition’s double standards.

The PTI leader took to Twitter on Saturday and said in a series of tweets that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) imposed complete lockdown in Azad Kashmir for two weeks and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government-enforced smart lockdown in four districts of Karachi.

Asad Umar, who also heads the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC), said both parties are insisting to hold a public gathering in Peshawar and one cannot find a clearer example of double standards than this.
