Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has revealed that the provincial government has almost completed the preparations for introducing a unified curriculum of education in all schools of the province to be enforced by March this year. He said this historic step of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government will bring about real change because it will put an end to the outdated class-based system of education introduced by the colonial era and will fill up the increasing gap between the poor and the rich in the society.
“Now the children of both the poor and the rich shall enter in to the race of equal competition and will avail equal chances and opportunities of progress”
He said that this revolutionary reform in education sector would especially benefit the students of the backward areas that often lagged behind in competitions with the students of urban and developed areas just because of the dual system of education and now they, on the basis of their hard work, could easily compete with the students of urban areas, he maintained.
He was talking to a delegation of the MPAs of the allied party Jamat-e-Islami that made a call on meeting with him in Peshawar and discussed with him matters related to the public welfare and developmental projects in their respective constituencies. Headed by MPA Malik Behram Khan the delegation comprised of provincial minister for local government Inayatullah, Ex- MNA Maulana Asadulla, MPAs Mohammad Ali, Muzaffar Sayed and Sayed Gul.
The chief Minister assured that developmental schemes were going to be started in all the districts of the province in the near future without any discrimination. However, he said that drastic steps would be taken to provide the basic amenities of life to the people of backward and far flung areas at their door steps and bring those areas at par with the developed ones.
He said that the process of appointing the Chairpersons of District Development Advisory Committees (DDACs) is being finalized and the committees are being vitalized which will speed up work on the developmental schemes at district levels.
Chief Minister approved the construction of a suspension bridge on river Panjkora at Khal Upper Dir with an estimated cost of Rs. 65 millions to meet a long standing demand of the area and directed the concerned quarters to start practical work on the project within one month time span. It merits a mention here that the said bridge was washed away by flood water a couple of years back causing great difficulties to a voluminous population of about thirty thousands settled on both sides of the river.
The chief minister further assured the delegation that developmental schemes would not only be started in all the districts but their timely completion and quality of work would also be ensured. MPAs of the allied party thanked the chief minister for taking keen interest in solving problems of their constituencies and assured that they would burn mid nights oil to realize the reforms agenda of the provincial government.
