Sindh minister Ghulam Murtaza Baloch
Sindh Minister for Human Settlement Haji Ghulam Murtaza Baloch passed away on Tuesday after battling coronavirus, provincial government spokesman Murtaza Wahab said.

Announcing the sad news on twitter, Wahab said, “he was a genuine political worker & a very polite and humble human being. May Allah SWT bless his soul.”

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah have expressed grief on the death of the party’s Malir district president.

“It is very difficult to fill the vacuum created due to his death,” Shah said.

He had contracted the virus during relief activities in his hometown on May 14 and requested for the prayers for a speedy recovery. He was elected to the Sindh Assembly from PS-88 Malir-II in July 2018 elections.

Baloch was moved to the intensive care at a private hospital in Karachi after his condition deteriorated on May 23.

Baloch is the second lawmaker in Pakistan who have died from COVID-19 after Shaheen Raza, who succumbed to coronavirus last month. She was a PTI lawmaker in the Punjab Assembly.
