This force is designed to distribute essentials supplies and food items to poor and daily wagers during the lockdown. More over these tigers will spread awareness and importance of self-quarantine and give precautionary meansures to the people so they can stay at home and fight COVID-19.
PM Imran Khan said that he created this force for the youth as they are the greatest asset of the country.
Imran Khan said that the entire world is fighting this disease and so far only China has been able to defeat the virus. That’s because China went for a complete lockdown and were able to cope up with the damage.
Imran Khan said our nation isn’t like China in terms of economic conditions else he would’ve gone for the complete lockdown too. In our country, poor people can’t even afford two square meals a day which is why complete lockdown was never an option for the PM.
