PM Imran expects cards from Sehat to press Sindh Govt but says that he does not believe in the health cards

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has shown optimism that the Sehat Insaf Card would be more expanded to bring greater popular pressure to bear on the Sindh government to enter its province. He also said that Tharparkar had been launched by the federal government. At the opening ceremony for the new block for Khyber teachings, the Prime Minister made his remarks.

"There is now also a historical project in other provinces that started in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The private sector will also invest in the province thanks to the Sehar Plus Card project and better hospitals can be constructed in the remote areas," said the prime minister.

The spokesman of the Sindh government, however, on Wednesday, remarked that the Sindh government did not believe in issuing "Sehat Cards."

The Speaker said that more than 300,000 people, including 38,000 from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P), have received medical attention from other provinces in Sindh for the past two years.

He also asked, "What's the reason for people from the province coming to Sindh [medical] if the rivers milk and honey flow in K-P [where the party in government at the Centre, Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), runs the government]?"
