RAJANPUR (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday launched the Sehat Insaf Card scheme in Punjab to provide quality health services to people who can’t afford them.
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and Punjab Minister for Health Dr Yasmin Rashid also accompanied the Prime Minister in the ceremony.
Addressing the ceremony held in Rajanpur, the premier maintained that the rich do not visit government hospitals for treatment due to their dire condition.
In Pakistan, the poor goes to government hospital while the rich visit private ones, he added.
“The former rulers use to have their treatment from abroad. Opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif also did the same. His son-in-law has also escaped abroad in guise of treatment whereas his son has always flown out,” criticized PM Khan.
“Nawaz Sharif also wants to go abroad for his treatment. He became Prime Minister thrice and Rs28 crore was spent on his treatment. Now he says that either he should be sent to jail or abroad for treatment,” said the premier.
