KHALIFA ARMAN Balochistan is the Province, bestowed with a host of natural resources, but still thoroughly ignored by some dimensions in form of separatist insurgency, apathy of successive government and above all the local leadership which wants to keep the Provinve in complete ignorance and to prolong their own traditional supremacy. Balochistan is the largest Province geographically, and covers 47pc of the country’s landmass.
Education mechanism in Balochistan is completely collapsed. According to a survey report male literacy incidence is 37pc and female 27pc which demonstrates poor literacy rate in Province. According to another study, rural literacy rate in Balochistan is 35pc which is realy deplorable. There are just 12,500 primary, secondary and high schools in the Province. According to Provincial Education Commission, the condition of schools is getting worse day by day as no action has been taken against the incidence of ghost schools and ghost teachers. I urge to the Chief Minister of Balochistan to allocate special funds to improve academic infrastructure of educational institution – the schools, colleges and a few universities. — Turbat
