Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday said his government’s vision is based upon the basic humanitarian principles of lifting the conditions of the downtrodden and weaker segments of the society.Addressing the launching ceremony of Sehat Sahulat programme for the disabled, the prime minister said the human society has roots in the compassion and consideration for the downtrodden. He said improving the condition of the deprived segments of society is the responsibility of the state. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government’s vision is focused on improving the conditions of weaker people of the society or those unfortunate who have been suffering from various issues, he added. The prime minister said they want to introduce a centralised and data-based programme in Pakistan in collaboration with all the institutions involved in financial support of the poor and deprived classes, and cited launch of the Sahulat Card and the Ehsas programme aimed at improving the economic conditions of the poor.The prime minister said every nation has a vision and that Pakistan is the only country to have been created in the name of Islam. “But, unfortunately, we have gone far from our goal for which this country was created,” he lamented. “The vision for Pakistan’s creation was to make it an Islamic welfare state on the principles of the State of Madina,” he said. “The State of Madina was a modern state as its foundation was laid on the basis of humanity and justice. Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) is a role model for us and if we follow his Sunnah and teachings, we will be successful,” he said. “The Muslims ruled the world for one thousand years following the principles of the State of Madina,” he added. The prime minister said the launch of Sehat Sahulat programme for the disabled is a step towards formation of a welfare state. Appreciating the performances of Dr Zafar Mirza and Dr Sania Nishtar in their respective fields, Imran Khan said it has been decided that from now onward, every ministry will present a report about their work or performance before commencement of the cabinet meeting every week which could improve life of common man and providing facilities to them.Earlier, the prime minister distributed Sehat Sahulat cards among a number of disabled persons.
