Faisalabad—Punjab Governor Malik Muhammad Rafiq Rajwana said here on Monday that active participation of female professional was imperative to achieving the ultimate objectives of progress and prosperity.
Addressing the fifth convocation of The University of Faisalabad (TUF) here, the governor underlined the importance of provision of basic amenities to people, saying that the government had been working strenuously to provide health cover to the poorest of the poor and in this connection the role of private sector was laudable.
He particularly appreciated the establishment of new and state-of-the-art hospitals in private sector and said that the private medical colleges would not only play their role in overcoming the shortage of professionals but also contribute to provision of medical facilities to the needy segments of society.
He hoped that 700 passing-out graduates would start their career and help provide medical facilities to the patients. He said that girls have excelled in almost all segments of life, but that was surprising that most of them abandon this noble profession after their marriage.
He also lauded the efforts of Madina Foundation, which had established Madina Teaching Hospital for the poor patients. He appreciated Mian Muhammad Haneef, chairman, Board of Directors (BoD) of TUF, saying that a large number of patients were being treated at Madina Hospital.
Later, the governor decorated the TUF graduates with medals and distributed degrees and certificates among them. Earlier, the governor formally inaugurated new Radiology Laboratory, where the latest MRI and CT Scan machines had been installed. Vice Chancellor Government College University Faisalabad (GCUF) Dr Muhammad Ali, VC Government College for Women University Faisalabad (GCWUF) Dr Naureen Aziz Qureshi, Director Investigation of Federal Ombudsperson Zaryab Musarrat and others were also present on the occasion.—APP
