Islamabad: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed asked the government to remove Zafar Mirza as state minister of health as the Supreme Court was a suo motu case on the coronavirus crisis, adding that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cabinet has become ineffective in the fight against the pandemic.
“The government has only provided census to the court,” THE CJP said.
He questioned when Parliament would legislate on the crisis.
“Rest of the countries have passed a law to deal with the emergency. The state has other jobs rather than just holding rallies,” the CJP said.
As of April 15, the number of coronavirus cases in Pakistan increased to 5,988 with 107 deaths.
