LAHORE - The newly-elected Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi says fascism has been ended in Punjab. Chairing a meeting here on Saturday, the chief minister said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has taken back the usurped mandate of Punjab in a democratic way and the process of service will start from where it was stopped.

“Change in the provincial government came with a true mandate which is not illegal. Winning the election of Punjab Assembly Speaker and Deputy Speaker’s no-motion movement is the victory of PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s narrative,” he added. Parvez said that the opposition must brace themselves for surprises in future. Moreover, he said that the provincial government has decided to further expand Health Card Scheme, launched by former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan. The chief minister approved upgrading emergency wards of all hospitals in Punjab, including Wazirabad Institute of Cardiology. He also directed the officials to end shortage of doctors and staff at Wazirabad Institute.
