July 8, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Minister for Planning Asad Umar has dispelled the impression of complete lockdown across the country during the fourth wave of coronavirus.

While addressing launching ceremony of the National Youth Council, the minister said that the government will not impose countrywide lockdown during the 4th wave of coronavirus pandemic feared to surface during current month.

He said during the past waves of coronavirus, the government’s strategy to handle the pandemic and overcome its after-effects has been very successful. He said that in case the ratio of positive cases goes up, the government would opt for smart lockdown as was done during the past phase.

“We warned a week back that if timely precautionary measures are not taken, the fourth wave of coronavirus can hit the country. The government may, however, consider imposing smart lockdowns in areas where cases are increasing,” he said.

Kamyab Jawaan Programme

Asad Umar promised that people will only be enrolled in the Kamyaab Jawaan Programme on merit. “The National Youth Council has been established on the orders of the prime minister,” he said.

It will enable students across the province to remain in contact with the government, he said, adding that it is important for the youth to participate in policy formation.

“The young generation should be confident of themselves and open their minds by gaining as much knowledge as possible,” he added.
