KP lags behind Punjab, Sindh in health service, says CJP


LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar Saturday said that the Sindh and Punjab governments have improved the health facilities while the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has failed to prove health service.
The chief justice was addressing a convocation ceremony of Services Institute of Medical Sciences in Lahore. He said that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has failed to improve health system while, Punjab and Sindh governments have made improvement in health facilities.
Stating that ensuring proper health services are provided was not his nor the court’s job, the chief justice said, “But there were flaws in hospital management systems and curbing flaws of institutions is the constitutional responsibility of the judiciary.” “We did not interfere in the internal matters of any institution,” he further said.
The top judge lamented, “Private hospitals are no longer academic institutions and have become business centres.”
“The court recovered Rs726 million from the millions earned by private medical colleges as fee and returned it back to the students,” he added.
Justice Nisar further said, “My love for the country is not one-sided by two-sided.” The chief justice said “I have spent my whole life working for the provision of justice. The purpose of my life is to stay loyal to my profession.”
“The real service is to fulfill your professional responsibilities with sincerity. My test has started and its results will come after I retire,” he added.
