LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar will inaugurate Sehat Insaf Card Programme in DG Khan today (Saturday).
A ceremony has been planned at Ghazi Medical College in which deserving people will be given Sehat Insaf Cards. 2,42,000 deserving families of the district are expected to avail this facility who will be entitled to avail free treatment facility up to Rs 7.20 lakh every year.
In this regard, the chief minister has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has provided the facility of treatment of all the diseases through this programme and expenditures incurred on movement from residence to the hospital and vice versa will also be given. This is the best initiative of the government which will provide free treatment facilities to the deserving people, he added.
Meanwhile, addressing the launch ceremony of Sehat Insaf Card at Rajanpur on Friday. the chief minister said that the Punjab government believes in equivalent progress of every city and citizen of the province.
“Rajanpur is situated at the confluence of Balochistan and Sindh provinces and it would not be wrong to term it as ‘the gateway of Punjab.’ Both Rajanpur and DG Khan are backward districts of the province and the past government did nothing for the development of these districts,” he said.
The chief minister said that DHQ and THQ hospitals, basic health units and rural health centers are being upgraded in Rajanpur districts and round-the-clock medical facilities will soon be available there.
