Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan expressed on Sunday his gratitude to Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif after Defence Housing Authority (DHA) in Karachi agreed to grant land for Shaukat Khanum hospital.

Imran said on his Facebook page that he wanted to express his thanks to the army chief for allotting land for his welfare hospital.

"Want to thank COAS Gen Raheel for helping SKMTH by granting land in DHA Karachi for the hospital," the social media post read.

On February 24, DHA and Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish a cancer hospital in Karachi.

Confusion persists regarding DHA-Shaukat Khanum hospital MoU signing ceremony

DHA administrator Brigadier Zubair Ahmed confirmed to The Express Tribune that the MoU had been signed. “This is a huge milestone for DHA and will benefit the whole community,” he said.

DHA is providing 18 acres of land in DHA City, located on the Super Highway, for the establishment of the hospital. It will cater not only to the residents of Karachi but also those hailing from Balochistan, rural Sindh and Southern Punjab.


bigsaf | 5 years ago | Reply So much for civilian rule. Imagine a US politician publicly thanking a US general for transferring land or real estate, whether private or public ownership, to him for whatever purposes. So many things wrong with that picture.
Mohammed | 5 years ago | Reply @Ch. Allah Daad: I agree the money should be given to the Sharif family so that they could spend more time in London. At the moment its around 50% but with this money could be better spent by the Sharifs on family holidays.
