‘PDM’s protest outside ECP, a matter of their political needs’ says governor Punjab


Lahore: Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar has said that the era of handling institutions with remote control has passed and now the institutions are independent. PDM wants decisions at their own whims rather than on justice. PDM’s protest outside ECP is just a matter of their political needs. Opposition’s plan to pressurize institutions will fail once again. The healthcare facilities provided by the Medical universities to the public through telemedicine centers are commendable. He was addressing the inaugural ceremony of the Journal of Pakistan Society of Internal Medicine at Governor’s House Lahore on Tuesday. Provincial Minister for Higher Education Yasir Sarfraz Humayun, Secretary Health Capt. ® Usman, Vice Chancellor, University of Health Sciences, Prof. Dr. Javed Akram, Vice Chancellor, King Edward Medical University, Prof. Khalid Masood Gondal, Dr Sumia Iqtdar, Prof. Aziz-ur-Rehman and others were also present on the occasion.

Talking to the media, Governor Punjab said that the present government is pursuing a policy of purging the institutions from political interference completely. The opposition has been pursuing a policy of protest for a long time and every time they hope to overthrow the government. But their hopes of overthrowing the government will be dashed many times by 2023. Replying to a journalist’s question, Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that the opposition wants to keep the political atmosphere heated up for its survival. He maintained that PTI under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan is as strong as a rock. There is no doubt that PTI has the confidence of the people and we are in power due to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s struggle.

Chauchry Mohammad Sarwar while criticizing the opposition, said that the government wants to take the country forward while the opposition wants to take it back, he added. Governor Punjab said that there will be no political discrimination in the Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority. We will work hard to provide clean drinking water to the people in all constituencies of Punjab. We have further expedited the projects of Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority, he added.

Addressing the event, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that the health facilities provided by the medical universities to the people through telemedicine centers during the Corona Pandemic in Punjab are commendable. He said that the universities should partner with the industry to provide employment to the youth and strengthen the economy. I can say with certainty today that in Punjab we have completely eliminated political interference in the universities, he reiterated.

Prof. Dr Javed Akram said that at present only 113 scientific journals are being published in Pakistan while 395 scientific journals are being published in the United Kingdom. In the field of medicine, only 3 Pakistani journals have an impact factor. For the first time under the auspices of UHS, a master’s degree program in medical journalism is being launched. On this occasion, Dr Sumia Iqtdar gave a briefing on the initiatives taken by the Pakistan Society of Internal Medicine.
