Spokesman Sindh Government Murtaza Wahab says that out of the 5 million masks received from China, 2 million will be used by Sindh while the remaining 3 million will be sent to Punjab and other provinces.
It is to be remembered that today special cargo aircraft from China has arrived at Karachi airport with N95 masks and other protective equipment.
In this regard, Murtaza Wahab said in his Twitter statement said that Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah has decided that out of the 5 million N95 masks from China, he will hold 2 million for Sindh while the remaining 3 million masks will be sent to Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan.
Responding to Murtaza Wahab’s tweet, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) activists and leaders criticized him for their reaction, saying that the Sindh government is politicizing the issue and this mask was not for the Sindh government but for the whole Pakistan.
In response to Murtaza Wahab, President Arif Alavi’s son, Awab Alvi, said, “Let’s all work together for Pakistan, but there should be no politics on this issue.”
Awab Alvi also included the Jack Ma Foundation’s tweet on the occasion, which states that donations have been made to various countries, including Pakistan.
“We should all work together but we should not adopt such marketing methods. These masks are not just for Sindh,” said Halim Adil Shaikh, the central vice president of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and PTI’s parliamentary leader in the Sindh Assembly.
