ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training, Shafqat Mahmood has urged the leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to implement standard operating procedures (SOPs), in the province despite wasting time for political point scoring on COVID-19 epidemic.
Talking to media Shafqat Mahmood said that after the 18th Amendment, the representatives of the provincial governments should run the education and health sectors in effective manner.
He said lack of commitment being observed on part of provincial governments, he said that both the sectors were deliberately neglected in the past, due to which, the people and incumbent government were confronted multiple challenges in tackling the issues in health and education.
The minister said “We were trying to implement an equal education system with better curriculum. But he said an enormous trouble was being observed due to authority delivered to provincial governments after 18th Amendment”.
He said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), government was seeking help in 18th Amendment but for this, we need to develop consensus with other political parties.
For amending rules, he said the ruling party should have two third majority. To a question about rising poverty level after COVI-19 lockdown, he said the incumbent government was well aware of the problems of the masses, and in this connection, a huge amount has been allocated under “Ahsas Program” to disburse it among the poor families.
Shafqat Mahmood said the funds were being distributed among deserving families to fight back poverty.
