KARACHI: Chairman of Pakistan People Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday blamed federal government for the spread of coronavirus in the country and asked how long can country endure the current leadership crisis.
Addressing a press conference, Bilawal Bhutto accused federal government of sabotaging efforts of Sindh and CM Murad Ali Shah to curb the spread of novel coronavirus.
