Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that healthcare is the top priority of the government. Addressing a ceremony after performing groundbreaking of Mother and Child Hospital in Rawalpindi on Friday, he said that the government would establish the hospitals where the need be. He said that loans would continue to increase if the prices were not increased. “The government knows about the price-hike. We want to see each labourer having a roof and meal,” he declared.

We will give buffaloes, goats and hens in villages,” he said.
