    PTI govt to launch ‘Education City’ project: Asad


    Speaker Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, Asad Qaiser Wednesday said the government would launch the “Education City” project as part of the education emergency declared by the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in the province to enhance literacy ratio.

    Addressing as chief guest at the launching ceremony of the book “Khama ba Jush” written by known columnist Fasihuddin Ashraf, he said 5,000 kanals land would be acquired for the “Education City” on the Peshawar-Islamabad Motorway. The land would be provided free-of-cost to those seeking to establish educational institutions, he added.

    The book launching ceremony was presided by Dr Shafiullah Khan. Among others, Home Secretary Syed Akhtar Ali Shah also attended the event.Asad Qaiser said various countries including China, Japan and Korea had expressed willingness to invest in education sector in the province. He said universities all over the world would be invited to invest and support the PTI’s initiative to promote education in the terrorism-hit Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

    He said that under the education emergency programme the government had increased the education budget by 70 percent to raise it to Rs66 billion. He said that working groups set up in various ministries would complete their work in 10 days for undertaking reforms in the government departments.

    Asad Qaiser said he would hold a meeting with Chief Minister Pervez Khattak to discuss the “Education City” project and other matters related to the promotion of education.

    He said the industrial sector in the province had been adversely affected due to the ongoing militancy and poor law and order situation. He reiterated his government commitment to revive the industrial sector.

    The Speaker said he was aware that extortion chits were being sent to the businessmen. He sought their help to enable the government to identify and nab such elements.

    He said for the fist time in the parliamentary history of Khyber Pakhatunkhwa the government would soon introduce an ideal Accountability Bill in the provincial assembly comprising of strict laws to curb corruption. He said under the new accountability act, all law offenders and corrupt elements would be held accountable irrespective of their status and power.

    He said that for the first time the PTI government had introduced Right to Information Act and any person can get information about any government functionary within two days.

    He said the provincial government would soon hold the local government elections and devolve power at the grassroots level. He said the development funds would be given to local bodies’ representatives for carrying out work in their respective areas.

    He felicitated Fasihuddin Ashraf for his writings and launching of his book and assured his government’s support for arranging such events in the future.

    Fasihudin, who is a senior police officer presently serv, said it was the first collection of his columns written in 2011. He said he also included in the book his columns of 2012 about Balochistan. He said his work is based on education, research and information for the readers and they are the best judges to evaluate his writings.

    Associate Prof Taj-Ud-Din Tajwar of the Superior Science College Wazirbagh, Peshawar, said the book was collection of research articles, profile interviews travel diaries, published in various newspapers.

    He said the book comprising of 96 writings mostly based on every-day problems, patterns of rulers and inability of the government functionaries to deliver. Some of the articles focus on his personnel experiences, favourite teachers, research and history of Pakhtuns.

    Noted columnists, writers and intellectuals including Younas Qiyasi, Saadullah Jan Burq, Dr Nazir Tabassum, Asif Nisar Ghayasi, Dr Zahirullah Zahir, and Prof Zahir Shah Zahir presented papers or made comments at the event.

    Although KP's govt is bit slow than expected but they surely are moving towards right direction. I am desperate to see these projects being materialized soon and start giving results.

    well really we need major!! majorrrrrrr!!!! educational reforms…
    Actually we need educational revolution……
    We stopped producing writers,caligraphists,painters,musicians and artists…
    There is just one notable institute for further studies in arts situayed in Lahore(NCA) PTI needs to make it two and the right of education for a child upto 8th class should be implimented especially in KPT,FATA,Southern Punjab and interior Sindh with almost all Balichistan……:pop:
    Balichistan government is also doing considerable work by building 3 universties in 1st year…
    Things atleast about literacy,education and security seems to be changing but work in health,medical research and formecy needs alot of attention along with land and industrial reforms……:coffee:

    Yes PTI govt is going to build two new cities, one near Abbotabad and one on Peshawar-islamabad motorway. shared the news item here, let me find it for you...

    yar the problem is law and order situation, and its not just about the investment being insecure but its about property being vulnerable b to threats/damage and also personal security... as long as law and order doesnot improve, investment would be slow to come... hope it improved by 2015.

    Blame these religious nutjobs and their bizarre version of how we should live their lives.

    Its funny, before 2001 these fools would shut the f**k up and stay in their little sh*tholes waiting to die so they can meet their maker and tell them what a self imposing lost fool they've been in their lives.

    Pakistanis were left alone to create, and when we create, we make wonderful things. There is so much creative talent in this country it is unbelievable, it is time we tell these fools no more. Get out of our country and go live in a cave with your Afghan friends.

    We will let God judge us, not these brainless hacks.

    Abbottabad has the highest literacy rate in the whole of country. I agree we need one education city in Abbottabad as well as Peshawar and near FATA. Where poverty is in masses, education is most necessary.
