According to sources, Tessori, while addressing an IT ceremony in Governor House Sindh, said that on August 14, more than 90,000 people will assemble at mausoleum of Pakistan’s founding father, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, with the aim of surpassing India’s record for the largest rendition of the national anthem.
During his address, he further said 10,000 people will get free ration and a health insurance card will also be issued to the deserving people, as reported by the media.
“As long as I hold the position, the doors of the Governor house will always remain open for everyone,” Kamran Tessori added.
