ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has launched the Digital Media Development Program and said that information technology (IT) is a big opportunity for the youth.
While speaking at the inauguration of the Digital Media Development Program in Islamabad today, Prime Minister Imran Khan urged the youth not to underestimate themselves and to set high goals for themselves.
The premier expressed his delight at the start of the Pakistani youth’s Digital Media Development Program. He claimed that the world is moving toward digital media, and that in the present period, youth are becoming millionaires.
He urged people to make collective efforts for the development of the country instead of prioritising personal benefits. The ideology of the creation of Pakistan was to form an Islamic welfare state and an Islamic state would never bow head at any cost.
Imran Khan claimed that previous rulers pushed citizens to bow their heads before foreign powers, but that the current government aims to make Pakistan a dignified and self-sufficient nation.
“In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, for the first time, every resident has their own health insurance card, which entitles them to free medical care (KP). Even in affluent countries such as the United States (US), not every person has access to health insurance.”
“We must transform Pakistan into an Islamic welfare state. Without the supremacy of law and justice, a society cannot develop. Our government is working to establish the rule of law and justice as the supreme law and justice in the country.”
In response to the propaganda against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government, Imran Khan stated that 70% of reports against the current government had been proven untrue in the last three years. He stated that opponents should criticise the administration, but only if the criticism is founded on the facts.
The premier said that the media under the PTI-led administration is completely autonomous, and that no previous government had permitted freedom of speech.
