ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Owing to rapidly increasing the COVID-19 cases across the country, Minister for Science Fawad Chaudhry Friday urged the opposition parties to put off their rallies in the public interest.

In a tweet, the minister said that the politics of agitation should be put off in the public interest and underscoring the need for creating an environment conducive to dialogue.

He urged individuals respected in both the government and opposition circles to come forward and play their role in paving the way for purposeful dialogue between the two.

He further called for easing acrimony, which, he said, is necessary for the country’s wellbeing.

Earlier, PM Imran Khan has appealed to political parties not to hold public meetings due to spread of coronavirus.

Expressing his views after a meeting of the National Coordination Committee for COVID-19 on Thursday, he said that the political parties should hold public meetings after two-three months to save the people from coronavirus.

He said that the governments are not toppled through meetings. "Under these circumstances, meetings are a source of the spread of coronavirus. After the meeting in Multan, 64 percent beds were occupied by patients," he added.

The prime minister said that 40 percent beds have been occupied by coronavirus patients in Peshawar.
