As the best awards were to teachers aimed to encourage their efforts in such circumstances and owing to better education, peace could be restored; speakers on the occasion expressed these views while talking to a great number of people. Political Agent, Mehmood Aslam and FSSP Assistant Director in their speeches threw lights on education and termed education as a key factor in today’s world.
Being a Chief Guest, Political Agent said no body could ignore the importance of education and the parents of the area admitted all their children in schools in order to get education and enlighten the name of country.
