Imran says waiting for Javed’s expulsion by Nawaz
Says investment in human resource must for development; inaugurates Qazi Hussain Ahmed Medical Complex and Nowshera Medical College
NOWSHERA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday that he was waiting when Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would expel PML-N lawmaker Javed Latif from the party.
He was commenting on the remarks of Javed Latif about the members of the family of PTI lawmaker from Swat Murad Saeed. He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should expel him from the party for being misogynist.
Imran Khan said if action was not taken against Javed Latif it would be assumed that the PML-N lawmaker had uttered the remarks at the behest of the party chief. He asked the prime minister to seek apology from PTI MNA Murad Saeed as the PML-N lawmaker's remark had violated the social codes of the society.
Criticising the federal government for ignoring education and health sectors, Imran Khan said that investment in human resource was a prerequisite for development and prosperity. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the Qazi Hussain Ahmed Medical Complex and Nowshera Medical College, he said investment in education, health and justice system was the hallmark of vibrant nations.
"Strong nations emerged on the world scene after their leadership directed energies to equip youth with knowledge and technological skills," he pointed out. Imran Khan said that construction of roads and bridges could not guarantee the development of a nation. He believed that Japan and Germany would have been wiped off the face of the earth had infrastructure development been the requirement for development.
"These two countries became the world leaders within 10 years after the World War-II as they diverted national resources to develop human capital," he elaborated. The PTI chief said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif must know that the foundation for development was providing education and health opportunities to all segments of the society.
Imran Khan lauded the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for policy of investing in development of the human capital. "The foundation for the best education, health and policing has been laid in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It would become an example for other provinces to follow," he argued.
Imran Khan said that for the first time in the province's history a huge amount had been allocated for human capital development. He said the education sector received the largest chunk in it.
The PTI chief said the provincial government also deserved appreciation for reforming the health sector. He was all praise for Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak for improving the condition of hospitals in the province.
Imran Khan said the provincial government was working hard to improve the services provided at the public sector hospitals. "Efforts are being made to lift the standard of the services at the public sector hospitals so that people stop visiting private hospitals," he said.
The PTI chief pointed out that doctors of the public sector hospitals would do institution-based practice instead of running private clinics. Imran Khan said that 1.8 million families had been given Insaf health cards while rest of the people in the province would soon get these cards.
