Rajanpur (Staff Report): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday launched Sehat cards in Rajanpur.
Addressing the launching ceremony, PM Khan said the PTI-led government will provide Insaf Sehat cards to the underprivileged families. The PM said that the government hospitals used to provide better healthcare but the politicians prefer to have their treatment abroad.
"I was born in a government hospital, my sisters were too. In the past, these hospitals used to provide standard healthcare," he said.
He said that the law for the poor and rich is different but the current government will hold each and everyone accountable.
The PM thanked provincial health minister Yasmeen Rashid on the inauguration of health cards.
