He said that the emergency of Sindh Government Hospital Liaquatabad is like the emergency of Jinnah, Civil and Abbasi Shaheed Hospitals and needs improvement “My main purpose of visiting city hospitals is to personally know the state of affairs of health care institutions to ensure betterment of the same”, he added.

Governor Sindh pledged that he would continue to visit hospitals and shopping centres to listen to the grievances of the common man.

“In addition to hospitals and shopping centres I will start visits of government schools and parks along with media to expose inefficiency and wrongdoings there also”, he added and said that media is showing everything, wherever I am going.

He said that since the establishment of this hospital in 1982, hundreds of plazas have been erected in Karachi but no improvement has been made in this important healthcare facility.
