The Prime Minister Imran Khan said that giant initiatives would be taken in the year 2020 to put Pakistan on the path leading to realization of the true vision of being a welfare state based upon the principles of rule of law, meritocracy and social equality.
APP reported that while addressing as a chief guest at the ground-breaking ceremony of the Air University South Campus, the Prime Minister told the three basic principles of social security, rule of law where no one was above the law, and the emphasis upon seeking of knowledge.
The Premier said his own vision to transform Pakistan on the pattern of State of Madina, which was ‘a tried and tested model’ in the human history based on the creation of a humanitarian system leading to the rise of a great nation. For the first time in history, a state had taken responsibility of its weaker segments, including widows, orphans and hapless.
Imran Khan stressed on learning from the life of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), who had laid emphasis that seeking of knowledge was a sacred duty and referred to the famous events of the Battle of Badar.
Imran Khan said his government’s basic target was to introduce a system of meritocracy in all spheres of life.
