ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan launched Sehat Sahulat Programme for the disabled on Saturday. Addressing the ceremony, the prime minister said that each ministry will present recommendations for improving the life of the common man in each meeting of the federal cabinet. “All institutions will be brought to one database.” The prime minister said that vision is the roadmap of the man. “It is regrettable that the dream for Pakistan was a great vision. We have distanced ourselves from it,” he said. He said that the state of Madina was a modern state based on humanity and justice. “We will succeed if we will follow the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAW).” The PM said that the claim of making Pakistan as Asian Tiger and Lahore as Paris was a betrayal with the vision. “Today’s program is according to our vision,” he claimed. He said that health insurance is very important and it is top priority of the government. Imran Khan said that Sehat Sahulat and Ehsaas programmes are part of the vision to help vulnerable and weaker segments of society. “Sehat Insaaf Cards will be beneficial to poor people to avail the health facilities free of charge.” Later, the prime minister also distributed Sehat Insaaf Cards among special persons. Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health Dr. Zafar Mirza said that Sehat Sahulat Progamme is already being provided to poor people in 48 districts. “The government pays a premium up to the amount of Rs720,000 if a person falls ill and receives treatment at a medical facility.” He said Sehat Insaaf Card will also be available to any person in Pakistan living with disability. Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation Dr Sania Nishtar informed the participants that under Ehsaas program, a two percent quota for special persons in government jobs and one percent quota in official accommodations has been reserved. “The Ministry of Human Rights is going through a legislation to provide legal assistance to special persons. The prime minister approved five more steps under the Ehsaas program that include ensuring social protection of Rs 10 million families in the next four years, provision of employment of 3.8 million people, distribution of Sehat Insaaf Cards among 10 million people in the next four years, giving stipends to five hundred thousand students, and ensuring saving bank accounts, mobile phones, stipends and creation of 500 digital hubs for six million women across the districts in Pakistan,” she said.
