During the induction of 21st Batch of FJDC, he declared:
“There is not even one dentist per ten thousand people in Pakistan. Oral Health plan had been chalked out by successive governments but there is no implementation of any kind nor has health and education been a priority.
Under these circumstances Dr. Baqar Askary, who had been a student leader, not only established a dental institute but has also managed it with great expertise, without any support and under most unfavorable environment. The graduates of this College are an asset for the Nation. Only through well educated and trained human resource can we ever bring about the necessary change.
I present Dr. Baqar Askary: “Kheraj-e-Tehseen” for this exemplary contribution and request everyone to support his efforts.”
