Islamabad, January 01, 2021 (PPI-OT): Prime Minister Imran Khan says we are moving forward to making Pakistan a welfare state. In a series of tweets today (Friday), he said our Ehsaas programme provides social security and our health card scheme provides the poor with proper medical access.

The Prime Minister said my New Year resolution for 2021 is to complete two projects. One, universal health coverage to all our citizens. It has begun in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and will soon be launched in Punjab and Gilgit-Baltistan. He said we hope other provinces will replicate this programme.

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.

About 2020, the Prime Minister said it was a tough year for us and for people across the world because of Covid19. But by the grace of God, we fared far better than most. He said we not only managed to protect our people but also saved them from hunger.
