Imran Khan scolds journalist

PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan snubbed a journalist here on Tuesday when he asked him a question about his decision to divorce his wife Reham Khan.

“There should be some norms. You should know your limits and feel ashamed for asking such a personal question,” an angry Imran told the reporter.

On the other hand, while admitting that the decade-old health system had collapsed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Imran Khan asked the judiciary to help them overhaul the system by vacating the stay orders granted to some doctors against the long-awaited health reforms.

Addressing a news conference, he said that the KP government wanted to bring reforms in the health sector and had passed the Medical Teaching Institution Reforms Act 2015 from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and formed the independent Board of Governors (BoGs) to run the affairs of public sector hospitals.

However, he said a group of doctors opposed to the new system went to the court and got stay orders against the proposed reforms. He said that 10 million patients visited the public sector hospitals annually and this had become a major source of income for some people, including doctors.

“And that is the reason they don’t want these hospitals to go out of their control and be run through independent and competent people,” he said.
