Pakistan has not been transformed in accordance with the vision of Quaid-e-Azam despite the lapse of 68 years, and while treatment and education facilities are readily available to elite, provision of the same to the common man is a big challenge, observed Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif during the inauguration of state-of-the-art Shehbaz Sharif Hospital in Bedian Road area on the eve of Quaid-e-Azam Day.

Addressing a function after the inauguration of the hospital, the chief minister said that this 60-bed hospital had been completed in two years and latest treatment facilities had been provided to the patients. He said that free of cost treatment and medicines would be provided to the patients while the bed capacity of the hospital would be increased to 100 beds in future.

Sharif said that the inauguration of the hospital on the occasion of Quaid-e-Azam Day reflected the determination towards service to the ailing humanity, adding that the hospital was another step towards establishment of the Pakistan of the Quaid.

The chief minister said that provision of easy and inexpensive education and health facilities was essential for realising the dream of the Quaid.

He said that efforts were being made under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to provide equal facilities to all citizens.

He said that modern treatment and education facilities were the basic right of every citizen and the government would ensure this right as Quaid-e-Azam had created Pakistan for this purpose.

Therefore, he added, work was in progress expeditiously on several projects in energy, infrastructure and transport sectors under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Referring to the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train project, Sharif said that it was precious gift of Chinese leadership to the people of Pakistan and after completion of this project, some 0.25 million people would benefit from this facility on a daily basis.

He further said that the nation had achieved tremendous successes in the war against terrorism by displaying unprecedented unity. He said that political and military leadership was on the same page in the war against terrorism. He said that the army had broken the back of terrorists through Operation Zarb-e-Azb and the nation was determined to completely eliminate terrorism and sectarianism.

The chief minister said that no effort would be spared for rooting out terrorists and their facilitators, adding that Pakistan would be made a haven of peace.

The chief minister thanked the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Trust Hospital Muzaffargarh and International Red Cross for the provision of modern treatment facilities at the hospital. He also felicitated Christian employees working in the hospital on Christmas and said the Punjab government shared their joys.



  1. He should thank Imran Khan for putting him on the right path, I hope. Shahbaz never had hospitals etc on his mind. Now a road will be constructed with few overheads and underpasses up to this Hospital. Why has he named it after his own name? Did he finance the whole project? I doubt that. Why wasn’t it named after our great Quid? Taxpayers money spent for personal ‘glory’ which is also fake glory.
