Says Pakistani ventilators to be handed over to govt on Thursday
This year should be dedicated to making corrections in our judicial reforms and laws of the National Accountability Bureau and other organisations, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday.
In a speech in the National Assembly, he said that the government and opposition should move ahead from fighting with each other and agree on national agendas.
“The public now wants the government and opposition to work together,” the minister said, adding that the country has spent a lot on landlords and investors. “It’s now time to spend on the youth of the country.”
Chaudhry pointed out that medical and engineering in Pakistan was next to nothing. If we want to see Pakistan prosper, we need to provide these facilities to the youth, he said.
He said that he immensely respects Mengal and all other politicians across Pakistan. “Shakespeare has said that this world is a stage, everyone comes here plays their part and leaves,” the minister remarked.
We are here today but we may not be here tomorrow, we will be only remembered by what we do in this world, he added.
“When the first coronavirus case was reported in Pakistan on February 26, all the medical equipment in Pakistan was being imported,” he said, adding that on March 5, the ‘Made in Pakistan’ project started.
Chaudhry contended that the first Pakistani-made ventilators will be handed over to NDMA by Thursday or Friday.
