Ban on schools

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

BAJAUR—PMLN Mem­ber Na­tional Assem­bly from Bajaur tribal agency Sha­habud­din Khan has ex­pressed con­cern over the ban on con­struc­tion of new schools in FATA by Fata sec­re­tar­iat and called for the im­me­di­ate with-drawal of the de­ci­sion. Talk­ing to re­porters here he crit­i­cized the Fata sec­re­tar­iat for im­pos­ing ban on con­struc­tion of new schools in the tribal ar­eas say­ing the de­ci­sion would put neg­a­tive im­pact over ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor in the re­gion. The ban on con­struc­tion of new schools would not only sab­o­tage the ef­forts be­ing taken for the pro­mo­tion of ed­u­ca­tion but will also cre­ate hur­dles for the stu­dents of tribal ar­eas. The de­ci­sion was be­yond un­der­stand­ing as the ex­ist­ing num­bers of ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions were too short for the stu­dents of the tribal ar­eas, he elab­o­rated. The pop­u­la­tion of the tribal ar­eas has sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased over the last ten years.
