KARACHI/ ISLAMABAD, September 7: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the promotion of literacy, be it the incumbent Selected-government or the undemocratic governments of the past, never remained among their priorities. It is a matter of big concern that Pakistan is lagging behind every country in the region except Afghanistan in the field of education and literacy.

In a statement issued from Media Cell Bilawal House on the occasion of International Literacy Day, PPP Chairman expressed his grave concern over the reports that more than 20 million school-age children are out of school in the country, adding that Education is the basic right of every child. He said that it is the duty of the state to make education equally accessible to all, especially girls.
“In the wake of a global pandemic, Covid-19, modernization of programs such as adult education and non-formal education is need of the hour to ensure the continuity of learning”, he added.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari regretted that the incumbent government’s agenda was not to increase literacy, rather its complete focus is on changing the name of the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) and its component the Waseela Taleem Program.

PPP Chairman pointed out that significant and basic steps, in the field of education, had only been taken during the tenure of PPP governments. Whether it was a government led by the Quaid-e-Awam Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, or the people’s government under the leadership of Mard-e-Hur Asif Ali Zardari, the largest number of schools and universities, in the history of the country, were established during the tenure of said governments. “The People’s Government of Sindh has allocated Rs. 277.5 billion for the Education and Literacy Department during the current financial year”, he maintained.
