We have been discussing all possible ways in which we could help government in controlling the deadly disease. We have felt that there may be a need for our resources like buildings, vehicles or trained manpower and we have offered it to the government, said PSAJK president G N Var.

He said the association has also made a list of the buildings to be offered for government’s use. The decision in this regard was taken during a meeting of the association held through video-conferencing, the statement said.
