Without pointing out opposition parties’ Peshawar public gathering slated for today, he said: “For political leaders to send a message that corona is not a threat is threatening lives.”

The opposition’s Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has come in for a lot of flak from the government for holding public meetings despite a spike in coronavirus cases since the second wave of the infection started lately.
