He added, "My New Year resolution for 2021 is to complete two projects. One, universal health coverage to all our citizens. Two, we will start our most ambitious nationwide project "Koi Bhuka Na Soyay "(No one should sleep hungry in Pak) under Ehsaas prog."

The prime minister stated that the health cover scheme has begun in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and will soon commence in Punjab & Gilgit Baltistan. "By the end of the yr these 2 projects will move us closer to our goal of making Pak a welfare state," he remarked.

The premier pointed out that year 2020 was a tough year for us and for people across the world because of Covid19 pandemic. "But by the grace of God we fared far better than most. We not only managed to protect our ppl but also saved them from hunger. We are moving forward to making Pakistan a Welfare State," he said.
