Governor Punjab also offered Fateha and condolences on the death of the mother of MNA Amir Dogar of Tahreek-e-Insaf at his residence.

He said that the government of PTI has no personal or political agenda. We only want the development and prosperity of Pakistani people for which the Federal and Punjab governments are working together. The main issue is the basic health facilities for which the present government has also issued a Health

card so that there would be no problems in providing health facilities to the people. The way medical universities of Punjab have been working on the front line during COVID-19 is laudable.

Governor Punjab said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has been talking about the rule of law and strengthening of institutions in the country from day one. I would also like to say to all the political parties that it is in the national interest rather than personal and political and all need to work together to save the country from problems like corruption.
