The prime minister, who also wore a mask, also advised a boy standing next to a cart in a bazaar to wear the mask as part of the government's efforts to strictly implement the anti-COVID precautions amidst third wave of the pandemic.

During his visit, the premier reviewed the Ehsaas Rehri Baan Pilot Project, Ramadan Sasta Bazaar, Sewage Treatment Plant at sector I-9, and under construction Korang cricket Ground where he was briefed by the CDA chairman about the projects.
