In view of the increase in cases of the corona virus in Pakistan, the government of Sindh province made a strange announcement on Thursday. The government has said that those who do not receive the corona vaccine within a week, their cell phone sim will be closed. For this, the provincial government has decided to approach the Imran Khan government and the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA).
Ask the center and the telecom authority
Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has asked the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) set up on the Corona virus in Pakistan to discuss the matter with the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority. He said the state government would ask the central government to forward its proposal to the PTA. If this happens within a week, the SIM card of people who do not receive the vaccine will be blocked.
