Elaborating on his previous statement on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s alarming dengue epidemic, Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Imran Khan said that the specially designed winter season would be enough to tackle the disease.
“Due to the grit that the Health Department has shown in putting up with the heat and waiting out till winter, we will be able to move the dengue problem to a resolution,” he said, while speaking to reporters in the provincial capital Bani Gala.
“Because, as opposed to the other provincial governments, the PTI government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa does its research, we knew what the best approach to handle this problem would be,” he continued.
“And that is wait for winter.” “Once our 7-member health board (which is headed by my cousin Dr Nousherwan Burki) met, they immediately found out that the Dengue mosquito dies out in the winter season. What an elegant solution!”
“If we were given a chance, we would use similar data-driven approaches in other areas as well,” he said.
“A lot of people made fun of Chief Minister Parvez Khattak when he offered the Taliban an office in Peshawar. But that was an innovative technique, much like the one we have used with the Dengue mosquitos.”
“People don’t know that the terrorists will stop blowing things up if we agree to each and every one of their demands.”
