Sehat Insaf Card  to facilitate the poor: Firdous

Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan has said the Sehat Insaf Card is a flagship programme of PTI government to facilitate the poor in getting free healthcare facilities.

“Thousands of deserving people are benefitting from the Sehat Insaf Card scheme across the province,” she said at an event held to distribute the cards in Layyah District on Tuesday.

Firdous said that provision of standard health facilities, quality education and timely justice is the top priority of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The naming Usman Buzdar for the post of Punjab Chief Minister proves Prime Minister Imran Khan’s love and concern for the people of southern Punjab.

She said the former rulers just focused on their personal interests and small towns were neglected. She said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan the journey of public service and development will continue.

The CM aide said the PTI government is making all-out efforts to fulfil all the promises made by PM Imran Khan. According to the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, every deserving family will get the Sehat Insaf Card without discrimination.

She said that around 50 per cent cards will be distributed among the people this year whereas 100 per cent cards will be distributed next year. She said that the CM recently initiated the Sehat Medicine Card programme that will provide free of cost medicines to the patients of Hepatitis, TB and Aids.

She also administered the oath to newly-elected officials of Jaman Shah Press Club. She also directed the Special Assistant to CM on Auqaf and Religious Affairs Syed Rafaqat Ali Gillani and the Deputy Commissioner Layyah Azfar Zia to complete the spadework for the establishment of journalist Colony in Layyah.

Addressing the media, she said that the South Punjab Secretariat has been established to resolve the problems of people of these areas where government officials and vigilant political leadership will deliver to the masses at their doorsteps.

She said that those who have left Pakistan to England in the garb of medical treatment are often found in shopping centres instead of a hospital. Responding to a question, she said that the PDM should fight with corona instead of mud-slinging the government. If life lasts, so does politics, she suggested. Later, the Special Assistant to Punjab CM also distributed Sehat Insaf Cards in Gojra Tehsil of TT Singh District.
