The caretaker chief minister called the Quetta deputy commissioner and ordered him to launch a crackdown against fake doctors looting public money and playing with the lives of innocent patients.

“People involved in this heinous business, endangering public lives must be dealt with an iron hand because the provincial government will not allow anyone to run fake clinics and sell expired medicines,” said Marri.

On the beautification programme for Quetta, the interim CM said, “The previous governments did not pay much attention towards the problems of Quetta, but we want to beautify the city as much as we can.
