LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday addressed the launch ceremony of the government’s Naya Pakistan Health Card initiative in Lahore and said that it will be rolled out to citizens from the first of January.
The premier said that in order to please God, one has to serve mankind and added that “most people are unaware of the concept of Riyasat-e-Madina, or the Islamic welfare state.”
He said that the country is required to spend Rs100 million per year to run the health system.
The premier went on to praise his government’s policy of imposing smart and micro-smart lockdowns as opposed to a full-fledged lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic and said that the entire world praised Pakistan for that.
He promised that by March 2022, all families in Punjab will have access to health cards.
