“The same PDM members who wanted a strict lockdown and criticised me earlier are now playing reckless politics with people’s safety,” the premier tweeted early Saturday.
“They are even defying court orders and holding a jalsa when [coronavirus] cases are rising dramatically,” he added. The premier was quote tweeting Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar.
