Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan launched the “Naya Pakistan Sehat Card” Program for the entire population of the Punjab province, in a pre-launch ceremony held at Governor House, Lahore on December 13, 2021. The Prime Minister said that 440 billion rupees will be spent on the Health Card Program in three years.
While addressing the launching ceremony, PM Imran Khan said that not everyone can take such revolutionary decisions like health cards as the PTI did.
“Today, every family in Punjab will get the health card facility. A welfare state is one where everyone has the opportunity for development and prosperity. For the first time in the State of Madina, the state took responsibility for the weaker segments of the society,”~Imran Khan
Dr. Sultan said every possible step is being taken to facilitate the public during price hikes. He said that ‘Ehsaas Ration Cards’ will be provided to half the population of Pakistan with every family whose monthly income is below fifty thousand rupees and they will get a thirty percent discount on flour, pulses, and sugar from ‘Karyana’ stores.
He said that Riyasat-e-Madina was the first welfare state in world history. He said that a welfare state like Madina can only be established once humanity is served in any country. He said that Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital was set up under the same philosophy. He said that ten billion rupees are spent annually for the treatment of cancer patients at Shaukat Khanum Hospital.
