Attock: Prime Minister Imran Khan says the PTI government’s foremost priority is to uplift marginalized segments of the society and bring less developed areas at par with the developed region.

The Prime Minister said every citizen of Punjab will have health card by March next year, while health insurance has been ensured in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He said the health system being introduced by the present government will attract investment from private sector. He said the government will provide land to the private sector at cheap rates to construct hospitals in rural areas.
Imran Khan said five mother and care hospitals are being constructed, and they will be completed within two years.
The Prime Minister said the government is focused on long term projects that will benefit the country’s economy.
He said exports are increasing and industry has flourished. He said new projects are being launched where overseas Pakistanis can invest. He said these investment opportunities will help the country in wealth generation.
Commenting on inflation and prices of petroleum products, the Prime Minister said among the oil-importing countries, Pakistan has the lowest prices for petrol and diesel.
The Prime Minister said inflation has become a global phenomenon due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing various issues such as supply shortages, trade closure, lockdowns, reduced buying and selling.
The Prime Minister said to control the inflation, Ehsaas Roshan Program is being implemented throughout the country under which around 30 percent price subsidy will be provided on flour, pulses and ghee for the poor
