Islamabad – Mudasser Chudhary:
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Women Wing Central Vice President (CVP) Khyber Pakhtunkwa (KP) Neelum Khan Toru said that 2020 was a difficult year for the whole world but we still managed to end it on a high note with respect to economic, political and national progress. She went on to say that the new year will bring successes for Pakistan and will bring us closer to the realization of long sought dream of becoming the Tiger of Asia. Appreciating the iniatives of Prime Minister Imran to mould Pakistan into a welfare state, she praised the vision of Prime Minister whose initiatives of Ehsaas Program and Sehat Card scheme are facilitating the poor and needy. Moreover, regarding new year resolutions, she said that Prime Minister Imran Khan looks foward to bring all citizens of Pakistan under universal health coverage in 2021. A project which is already under process in KP and will soon be initiated in Punjab and Gilgit Baltistan. She said other than that, PTI government will inaugrate the landmark project of ‘Koi Bhuka Na Soyay’ (No One Should Sleep Hungry). She said completion of these projects will bring Pakistan closer to the concept of welfare state. Commenting on the opposition’s movement against PTI government, she said that opposition leaders exploited every forum available to cast rift between civil-military leadership but failed miserably. She said that although giving NRO to corrupt opposition leaders will make the ground smooth for government, but PTI will never betray the trust people of Pakistan put in it on election day. The CVP added that current account of Pakistan remained in surplus in 2020 as well as State Bank reserves also increased and 2021 will be even better now that that hard time has passed.
