ISLAMABAD: The Pakistani diaspora will soon be allowed to enter Prime Minister Imran Khan's 'Corona Relief Tiger Force', his special assistants on Overseas Pakistanis and Youth Affairs, Zulfi Bukhari and Usman Dar, respectively, agreed during a meeting on Thursday.

The 'Overseas Tigers', as they were dubbed, would ensure that rations are distributed properly with the help of generous people, Bukhari said. The 'Overseas Tigers' would also collect funds from well-known individuals and munificent people, he added.

"These funds will be used to provide rations to Pakistanis stranded anywhere in the world," the special assistant added, noting that the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development and the PM's 'Corona Relief Tiger Force' would set up a joint portal for registration.

"Responsibilities will be assigned a few days after registration process," Bukhari explained, adding that a new website was being started from Monday for this purpose.

"The overseas Pakistanis will [also] be able to donate to the PM's Corona Relief Fund through the new website," he explained, noting that fighting the novel coronavirus was a huge task for PM Imran and his government.
