Senior Minister Punjab Abdul Aleem Khan has said that welfare projects on self help basis are the symptoms of an alive society and indeed Imran Khan has set great targets to achieve for welfare activities. He added that Shaukat Khanum and NAMAL University have established new history in Pakistan which also encourages others to come forward for this noble cause.
