Earlier, PM Imran had launched the Sehat Insaf Card for people living in the tribal districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Addressing the ceremony, PM Imran said that having access to free healthcare is perhaps “the biggest blessing from God for a household of lesser means”.

“For such a family, when a member falls ill, it is a bombshell. As it is, the earning member feeds the others with a lot of difficulties.
With someone getting sick, the whole budget gets upset, and they fall deeper into poverty,” he had said.Stating that the health cards will alleviate poverty, PM Imran said, We want to aid and safeguard the poor segments of the society by issuing health cards.Under the programme, Rs 720,000 will be allotted for every household. “At least in their difficult times they can have the consolation that they have the health card,” the prime minister had said, adding that a family can use the card at any hospital in any city and receive treatment worth that amount.

DG ISPR to address important press conference today

RAWALPINDI: Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Major General Asif Ghafoor is expected to address an “important” press conference at 3 pm on Friday.
The press conference comes at a time when Pakistan and India face heightened tensions after the Pulwama attack in the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK).
On February 14, at least 49 Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed and many others injured when suspected militants targeted a convoy with a car bomb at Awantipora, in what is the worst attack ever on security personnel in the state.The car bomb attack was reportedly claimed by militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad and carried out by a 20-year-old Kashmiri man.

India has accused Pakistan of facilitating the attack as tensions between the two countries escalated and India announced it would withdraw Pakistan’s ‘Most Favoured Nation’ status. However, Pakistan has denied all allegations of terror financing.Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Pakistan Army to respond decisively and comprehensively to any aggression or misadventure by India.The premier issued the directives during a meeting of the National Security Council (NSC), which discussed the geo-strategic environment in the region as well as the situation arising after the Pulwama incident.Prior to the NSC meeting, Khan also held a meeting with Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa. The two dignitaries discussed the national and regional security situation, it was reported.
