The people who had run the campaign against the institutions have also been identified, sources said, adding that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) would probe the matter.

This comes after several politicians demanded PM Imran and the judiciary take action against the anti-army remarks made by a PTI leader.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said the government of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf had made remarkable improvements in public sector development, particularly health, education and economy.

“No government in the past has ever taken steps for the welfare of common man as done by the PTI government,” he said in his address in Islamabad at the groundbreaking of a new 200-bed accident and emergency centre at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) and another 300-bed Jinnah Hospital in Sector G-11/3.

The prime minister said the provision of the best facilities for emergency patients was in line with fulfilling the requirements of humanity.

He said the quality medical facilities at PIMS and Jinnah Hospital would facilitate the growing population of the capital as per the international best practices.

He expressed satisfaction that the new setup at PIMS would supplement the existing healthcare facilities and would also aid in reducing the burgeoning load of patients in Islamabad and the suburbs.

He thanked the overseas Pakistanis for sponsoring the architectural designs of the PIMS emergency section.

Imran Khan said the government’s national health insurance card was the best scheme in the public sector which was not even available in developed countries.

He termed the introduction of a uniform education system another milestone of his government that aimed at developing unity among the future generation.

The prime minister said the establishment of the Rehtmatul lil Alameen Authority was a big step towards the capacity-building of the young generation in accordance with the teachings and morals of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him).

On the economy, he said all strong indicators were contributing to the financial stability of the country.

Earlier in the day, PM Khan said that the development of the Reko Diq gold and copper mine would play an important role in the social and economic uplift of Balochistan province and Pakistan.

The prime minister was talking to Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani who called on him.

The Senate chairman thanked the prime minister for the successful agreement with the Barrick Gold Company for the development of gold and copper reserves in the Reko Diq area and waiver of a penalty worth $11 billion.

Separately, PM Khan, while noting the robust defence ties between Pakistan and Azerbaijan, expressed the desire to further expand the brotherly relations with a special focus on bilateral trade, tourism and people-to-people contacts.

The prime minister was talking to Minister of Defence of Azerbaijan Colonel General Zakir Hasanov who called on him.

Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Zaidi along with several members of the National Assembly (MNAs) from Sindh also called on the premier to express their confidence in his leadership.

During the meeting, the ongoing development projects of the federal government in Sindh came under discussion.
