Dr Raisi stated, "I the moral system of the Islamic Republic, corruption and discrimination are not acceptable at all".

The President said, "Our main task in the Popular Government is philanthropy, and this method of sincere work for the people is the greatest lesson of Ramadan for us".

Referring to his observations during his visit to Alborz province, Dr Raisi said, "Today, the need to change the situation is not hidden from anyone. But we must keep in mind that change does not happen with normal work, but requires jihadist work".

The President called on the managers and experts of Alborz Province to prioritise the issues and said, "Another condition for the success of employing the young forces who are believers and revolutionary, efficient and of course with the priority of local forces".

Dr Raisi added, "Another requirement for success is to pay attention to the importance of management and employing efficient managers, who have a very decisive role in creating change".

The President went on to address some of the province's problems, including the lack of hospital beds in Alborz, per capita educational shortages and the need to build new schools.
