Prime Minister Imran Khan has made surprise visits to the hospitals in Sargodha and Khushab and a police station in Talagang city to examine the quality of public services there.
The step was part of his initiative to make unannounced visits to the government institutions including hospitals, police stations, schools, shelter homes and development schemes.
