PESHAWAR – Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan, has said that the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital Peshawar would resolve the problems of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa patients as 25 per cent of cases of cancer belonged to this province.

He said this while addressing the inaugural ceremony of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital and Research Center in Hayatabad Peshawar on Friday.

On this occasion, Provincial Information Minister Mian Iftikhar also accompanies Imran. He said that the first phase of Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital would be completed in two-and-a-half years duration.

He added that this hospital would lessen the problems of FATA and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa people. He said that in the early stage he had no money for Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital Lahore and that was the reason that he again joined cricket and succeeded in his mission by bringing the world trophy to Pakistan and then he started work on that hospital. 

He said, “we would serve the ailing humanity in this hospital beyond any political affiliation.” He said that the country facing multiple problems and there is no shortage of resources but the country needs a sincere leader.

He thanked the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for allotting a valuable piece of land for the construction of this hospital. He said that the Sindh government has also allotted some land for hospital but he rejected that land, as there were no basic facilities at the proposed allotted land.
