Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday that the government was focused on providing the masses with health and education facilities.
The Prime Minister spoke to people at a public rally in Sahiwal, where he had arrived to launch welfare and development projects. During his speech, Prime Minister Punjab’s Prime Minister Usman Buzdar praised a major operation against “land grabbers”.

He said the government had taken steps against “Lahore’s largest qabza group” and accused a former prime minister of supporting them.
“That [former] the prime minister and his government protected these invaders, ”he said.
The Prime Minister turned his weapons against the opposition, saying that change had actually been brought to Pakistan, for the first time ever, “big thieves” were held accountable.
‘Every person in Sahiwal gets health insurance worth Rs 750,000’
The Prime Minister said the government had decided that every person in Sahiwal gets a health insurance of Rs 750,000.
“Research around the world shows that these households, which are even located above the poverty line, suffer setbacks when they are affected by diseases,” he said.
The Prime Minister said his government had decided to launch a health insurance free of charge for the masses from DG Khan as it was the most backward area in the province. He promised to provide health insurance to every single person in Punjab.
“In December, Insha’Allah, every person in Punjab will have health insurance,” he said.
The Prime Minister said that even in the developed countries, the common man was not offered universal health care.
Prime Minister Imran Khan called on the Punjab Prime Minister to focus on improving education in public educational institutions.
He lamented how three different education plans were taught to students in a country. “In one country, we have three different curricula. Three different cultures,” he said.
