ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said that Pakistan is moving forwards a welfare state on Friday.

In a series of tweets today (Friday), Imran Khan said that 2020 was a tough year for us and for people across the world because of COVID-19. "But by the grace of God we fared far better than most. We not only managed to protect our people but also saved them from hunger. We are moving forward to making Pakistan a Welfare State," he maintained.

 

The prime minister said our Ehsaas programme provides social security and our health card scheme provides the poor with proper medical access. "My New Year resolution for 2021 is to complete two projects. One, universal health coverage to all our citizens. It has begun in KP & will soon in Punjab & GB," Imrna Khan tweeted.

Second, the Prime Minister said, we will also start our most ambitious nationwide project "Koi Bhuka Na Soye" under Ehsaas Programme. By the end of the year, he said, these two projects will move us closer to our goal of making Pakistan a welfare state.
