10 Best Activities



The PM is preceding the Micro Health Insurance just 10 days before the local body polls during his extensive day visit to Peshawar.

This campaign is said to earn a lot of criticism from the opposition due to its launch date merely before the elections.


According to the reports, free medical services worth 1 Million rupees will be granted to 7.5 million families in KPK. This shall all take place under the Kamyab Pakistan Programme.

The primary stage of polling begins on the 19th of December. This schedule has been announced by the Election Commission of Pakistan for 17 districts as of now.

Along with holding meetings with the political administration in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the prime minister will meet Governor Shah Farman along with Chief Minister Mehmood Khan.

A detailed briefing on Social Protection and Poverty Eradication is expected from the PM’s assistant Sania Nishtar. This will take place during the registration ceremony of the Ehsaas Ration Discount Programme that the Prime Minister will be attending.

The Ehsaas Ration Programme is said to provide ration (groceries) to almost 20 million families which covers almost 130 million people. All of these belong to the economically vulnerable and weak sections. There is also an expected interplay between the Prime Minister and the trader association which is basically the Karyana Alliance, also known as the grocery alliance.

Another great step is to be taken today as Prime Minister Imran Khan will be distributing cheques under the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. These will be given to the Imams associated with the Jamia Mosques. This extensive visit is looked forward to the most today. A lot of controversies is also been anticipated with the introduction of the Micro Health Insurance Program.
