LAHORE, Dec 27 (APP): Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has said that the government will try its best to cover a big chunk of the population with free-of-cost coronavirus vaccine.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, he said that private companies would be given permission to import coronavirus vaccine.
He said efforts would be made to provide vaccines free of cost or at minimum price to maximum number of people, adding that vaccine would be administered to front-line workers and senior citizens on priority.
The minister said that a comprehensive model for the administration of corona vaccine was being prepared in that regard.
Fawad, while criticizing leadership of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), said Shaheed Benazir Bhutto was a personality who kept intact all the federating units of the country and added that unfortunately when the party went into the hands of Zaradaris, it lost its credibility.
He said that now the PPP was led by those who had confined the party to interior Sindh. He said that the kingdom system was also diminishing in countries like Bhutan and Austria, adding that it was very unfortunate that in Pakistan hereditary characters were in politics in the lust of power.
He said that the creation of Pakistan was the outcome of a democratic struggle. Whether premiership was a slot for internship which could be given to children, he questioned.
