NDPP has also welcomed the participation of all the MLAs of the NPF who have positively joined the task forces in their respective districts. It was optimistic that their contributions and valuable experiences would go a long way in strengthening the collective efforts in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
NDPP expressed confidence that the concerns, suggestions and constructive criticism would help in strengthening the efforts being put in to fight the global pandemic. NDPP added that, “it would be most unfortunate and selfish if we take these difficult times to politicise and push forward our political agendas and interests.”
