Lahore:Deputy Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League senior central leader Ch Parvez Elahi has said that N-League should not make Imran Khan’s established welfare institution like Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital target of its traditional political victimization.
In a statement issued here today, Ch Parvez Elahi said that targeting a hospital for political vengeance is highly deplorable and the greatest moral degradation on the part of N-League. He said politicking against most modern hospital rendering great services to the cancer patients is highly condemnable and worst example of resorting to such low level tactics and grave violation of moral and social values.
Ch Parvez Elahi said that Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital is a non-political welfare institution rendering healthcare services to the people where millions of cancer patients are provided most modern treatment and highest standard of facilities and deserving patients are even treated free.
He said that N-League campaign of allegations against Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital perhaps may not harmful to Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf chief Imran Khan but would certainly cause irreparable loss to the cancer patients from all over the country in particular the deserving poor patients who are treated free of charges. He asked the N-League leadership to discard such low and negative tactics. He said the mishandling of the hospitals and the patients in the Punjab, deteriorated situation in the Govt. hospital due to their faulty policies and the bad treatment being meted out to the patients and the doctors are very sad reflection on their tall claims of “rendering of services to the people”.
He further said that if a welfare institution is rendering such invaluable services to the cancer patients, it should not be stopped from working and vengeance of political opposition of its founder should not be taken from the most modern and the greatest cancer hospital.
