ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: As the New Year sets in, Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced to initiate two more programmes in the year 2021 – the “Universal Health Coverage” through the Health Card Scheme and “Koi Bhuka Na Soyay” under the Ehsaas Programme.

In a series of tweets on Friday, the prime minister said that 2020 was a tough year for us and the people across the world because of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The prime minister said that but by the grace of Allah Almighty, we fared far better than the most.

“We not only managed to protect our people but also saved them from hunger. We are moving forward to making Pakistan a Welfare State,” he wrote.

Imran Khan said that our Ehsaas programme provides social security and our Health Card Scheme provides the poor with proper medical access.

The prime minister said that my New Year resolution for 2021 is to complete two projects; one, the Universal Health Coverage to all our citizens. He said that it has begun in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and will soon be launched in Punjab and Gilgit-Baltistan.

“We hope other provinces will replicate this programme,” the prime minister said.

Two, we will start our most ambitious nationwide project “Koi Bhuka Na Soyay” (No one should sleep hungry) under the Ehsaas programme.

The prime minister said that by the end of the year 2021, these two projects will move us closer to our goal of making Pakistan a Welfare State.
