Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

MUL­TAN—Pres­i­dent Mam­noon Hus­sain has said the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments are pay­ing at­ten­tion to pro­vi­sion of bet­ter health­care fa­cil­i­ties to the peo­ple. In­au­gu­rat­ing Bakhtawar Ameen Med­i­cal and Den­tal Col­lege in Mul­tan on Thurs­day he how­ever said en­sur­ing health­care fa­cil­i­ties to the peo­ple par­tic­u­larly in far-flung ar­eas is a gi­gan­tic task. The gov­ern­ment is work­ing to­wards this end but re­spon­si­bil­ity also rests with other seg­ments of the so­ci­ety to join hands in the en­deav­our to pro­vide bet­ter health-care fa­cil­i­ties to the peo­ple at their doorsteps.

He said that gov­ern­ment was com­mit­ted to ex­tend all pos­si­ble fa­cil­i­ties of health to masses at their doorsteps. Is­sues of health are too com­pli­cated to be re­solved by gov­ern­ment it­self and it needed sup­port from cor­po­rate sec­tor also in this re­gard. The Pres­i­dent also em­pha­sized the need for launch­ing spe­cial cam­paigns in or­der to raise aware­ness amongst the peo­ple against con­ta­gious dis­eases.

Mam­noon Hus­sain said med­i­cal col­leges should pro­mote the cul­ture of re­search and en­hance col­lab­o­ra­tion with world in­sti­tu­tions to in­tro­duce best prac­tices in their in­sti­tu­tions. Pres­i­dent asked the doc­tors to re­spect the time of other peo­ple and should not waste their time in­ten­tion­ally. Re­fer­ring to the de­vel­op­ment projects, the Pres­i­dent said the gov­ern­ment is main­tain­ing a bal­ance in the de­vel­op­ment of all the sec­tors.

Pres­i­dent sug­gested that the whole pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion should be handed over to women in coun­try, adding that the women could ed­u­cate chil­dren with great care. Pres­i­dent said Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter En­gi­neer Ba­lighur Rehman should move for­ward his sug­ges­tion, adding that if the pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion will be handed over to women it will be ben­e­fi­cial for coun­try. Pres­i­dent said that the re­li­gion teaches us to make bal­ance be­tween the things.

He said it is wrong that the pri­or­ity of gov­ern­ment is not ed­u­ca­tion but metro bus. He said the crit­i­cism of op­po­nents of gov­ern­ment over the metro bus project is wrong. He said peo­ple could ed­u­cate their chil­dren while sav­ing money through mak­ing jour­ney on metro bus. He said sys­tem of merit should be pro­moted in coun­try. Gov­er­nor Pun­jab Ma­lik Muham­mad Rafiq Ra­jwana, Fed­eral Min­is­ter for Food Se­cu­rity Sar­dar Sikan­dar Hayat Khan Bo­son and oth­ers were also present in the cer­e­mony.—SABAH
