KARACHI: A delegation of Sindh Madressatul Islam University’s National Leadership Programme, led by vice chancellor Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh, called on prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi at the Prime Minister Secretariat on Tuesday.
In his welcome address, the prime minister said that education is now a provincial matter under the 18th Amendment, but it is still in its evolution process, and that is why it will take some time to bring out improvements in its system.
“We want to introduce an equal education system in the country, but there are some difficulties in its way. Despite that fact, we are trying to accomplish the task,” said the premier.
The prime minister said that the youth of the country have to cast their votes in favour of the right people in the upcoming general elections, otherwise, the country will suffer a lot during the next five years. He said that people are the real power of the country, and so, only the parliamentary system can lead the country towards development and prosperity.
He further said that they have to give equal importance to all the provinces and there should be no injustice with any province.
The prime minister said that the ban on students’ unions had neither benefited the education sector nor the students. In fact, it gave birth to violence within the educational institutions of the country. Now there is a need to think whether students’ unions should be restored or not and if that would be in the better interests of the country.
The prime minister advised the media to perform their duties responsibly. He said that the government is paying attention to the energy sector, adding that as there are numerous reservoirs of coal in the country while is a shortage of water, the government is giving priority to coal energy
PM Abbasi also said that about 70 percent of the parliamentarians have been elected for the first time, and this is why some time is needed to improve the system.
The prime minister while praising Dr Shaikh for providing the students with an opportunity to have a direct session with the premier, advised the students to keep themselves updated regarding the issues that the country is facing, so that they can develop an opinion and share it through media and social media platforms.
At the end of the session, SMIU VC presented a souvenir to the prime minister. On the same day, the SMIU delegation also visited the Air University, where the vice chancellor of the university, Air Marshal (r) Faaiz Amir welcomed the delegation.
