ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has reiterated his government’s commitment to ensure accountability across the board without showing any leniency.
Addressing distribution ceremony of Sehat Insaf Cards in Rajanpur this afternoon, he said if a corrupt person is arrested, some people start making hue and cry and term this action as anti-democracy.
The Prime Minister said what an irony it was that rulers spent public funds for their personal benefits. He said Shahbaz Sharif ruled Punjab for 10 years, but he failed to establish any quality hospital where rulers and other influential people get treated.
Imran Khan said he will try his best to make Pakistan a welfare state by upholding principles of justice and humanity laid down by the State of Madina.
He directed Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmeen Rashid to expedite reforms in government hospitals in the province to improve health facilities so that a common person can get his treatment there.
The Prime Minister also distributed health cards among some of the deserving families of district Rajanpur. He said Rajanpur is the most backward area of Pakistan and his government is going to start health cards distribution to facilitate people of this area.
He said this campaign will be further expanded to other parts of Punjab. He said under the Sehat Insaf Card, a family can get medical treatment upto 7,20,000 rupees.
