Smog Emergency Imposed Across Punjab: Masks Mandatory

Lahore: Under the leadership of caretaker Punjab Chief Minister Mohsin Raza Naqvi, a lengthy session was held involving government ministers and environmental experts to deliberate on measures to combat smog.

During the smog-related session, environmental experts briefed the participants that shutting down schools and transport alone would not make a significant difference. In light of this, a smog emergency has been imposed for a month all across Punjab, making it mandatory for all students and teachers in both public and private schools to wear masks for one month.

The Lahore authorities have enforced a prohibition on vehicles emitting smoke and intend to find a spacious area to seize such vehicles. Furthermore, the environmental department will seal industries responsible for pollution, with the unsealing procedure contingent on court orders.

The concerned Chief Minister, Minister Mohsin Raza Naqvi, stated that the mandatory use of masks is being enforced for the well-being of students. He also appealed to the public to use masks and directed provincial ministers to visit both public and private schools from tomorrow.
