"We have to go to the people in sorrow and joy. Under SOPs, elected representatives should go to public places," the lawmaker said.

Last week, KP Health Minister Taimur Khan Jhagra was booked for violating COVID-19 protocols after he attended an iftar-dinner in his constituency at a restaurant.

Jhagra attended an iftar dinner at a restaurant in his constituency despite government restrictions to control the virus spread in the province.

The province is currently facing the worst conditions under the third wave of coronavirus.
