Karaj (IP) - Iranian president stated that the discourse of the Popular Government is to create change and try to bring the current situation as close as possible to the desired condition.

Iran PressIran News: Speaking in a meeting with elites, clerics, martyrs' families, war veterans, and people of Alborz province on Thursday afternoon, Ebrahim Raisi said: "The document of the government's desired change is based on the Declaration of the Second Step of the Islamic Revolution."

"In the last 40 years, many steps have been taken for the development of the region, but there is a longer way to go," Raisi added.

Raisi further stated: "The main strategy of today is the system of creating hope for the future, and whoever moves in this direction moves in the direction of achieving the goal of the system."

Pointing out that today there is a weighty responsibility on all officials in the Islamic Republic of Iran, the president stated: "Today, we must all realize that although the enemy does not want Iran to progress and become strong, our duty is to redouble our efforts."

Raisi stated that the main focus of our efforts should be on strengthening the components of power of the Islamic Republic of Iran, noting: "Today, science, economics and the support and presence of the people are the most important components of power."

The president described one of the most critical factors in strengthening the people's trust in the system to improve the efficiency of the administrative system.

In another part of his speech, Raisi said: "The discourse of the Popular Government is to create change and try to bring the current situation as close as possible to the desired situation."

"It's not a difficult task to describe and explain justice, but it is important that people feel in practice that justice has been done," he said.

Raisi reiterated: "The government will focus on the will of the people in the path of justice, and wherever the will and interests of the people are in conflict with the will of some special group, the public will will take precedence."

Emphasizing that the people are dissatisfied with corruption and discrimination, the government should base its work on eliminating corruption and discrimination in the country's administrative system, the president said, "The government should act according to justice and the people should closely monitor the government's performance."

In another part of his speech, the president mentioned paying attention to the dignity and improving the quality of teachers' work, paying attention to providing an appropriate education for students in the education system, and paying attention to the education provided in kindergartens, among other government concerns in the education system.

Raisi went on to describe the government's plan for economic reform, saying, "The day we took over the government, the $8 billion in the 1400 budget for the payment of the preferred currency was almost gone, but the government did its best to manage the supply of basic goods without shock to the market, in which the Supreme Leader also helped the government a lot".

The president added, "There was no lack of coordination in this regard in different parts of the government and the government's position in this regard was quite clear from the beginning. The economic team of the 13th government is working in high coordination to implement government policies and strengthen the national economy".

Raisi also talked about the document of the transformation of the Popular Government, saying, "16 think tanks and more than 500 experts in various fields gave expert opinions about this document".

The president also clarified the government's plan to regulate the automobile industry, saying, "During my visit to Iran Khodro, I emphasized that the monopoly of the automobile industry in the country should be reformed as soon as possible."

In the last part of his speech, Raisi emphasized the need for consensus and participation of all members of society to bring about change in the country.

He stated, "We expect the university, as the think tank of the government, to formulate the system of the country's problems and the seminaries to offer a solution to solve the country's problems by relying on dynamic and civilization-building jurisprudence."

Unfinished hospital in Kamalshahr, Karaj, to be completed in two years

Raisi also visited the project under construction of a 100-bed hospital in Kamalshahr, Karaj.

Raisi referred to the 18% progress of the project and said: "The government's plan is to first complete those projects that have more than 50% physical progress."

"However, considering that this hospital is located in one of the deprived areas of the province, it was decided to complete it and serve the people as soon as possible by allocating the necessary funds and the jihadist action of the relevant officials," he said.

The president stressed the need to facilitate the access of the people of Alborz province to medical services and added: "Alborz province provides more than 60% of the country's drug needs and it is not acceptable for the people of this province to stand in line for treatment and access to medical services".

Gov't to pay its share for Karaj commuter rail financing

During the visit, Ebrahim Raisi expressed his dissatisfaction with the excessive delay in the construction of the urban rail project in Karaj and called the spending of 15 years on the project, which is still incomplete, unacceptable and instructed. He also asked the project managers to provide an accurate timetable for the completion of the remaining parts of the project.

Emphasizing removing the existing obstacles to financing the completion of this project, Raisi instructed the project managers to submit their proposals for the project financing methods to the government and added: "The government will try to pay its share of financing this project as soon as possible."

The implementation of the Karaj commuter rail project started in 2006, but due to the lack of required resources, it has remained practically half-finished.
