Government of PakistanEducation vital to confront modern challenges: PM Khaqan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday said gaining education was vital for a Country to succeed and help it confront all modern day challenges.

Talking to a group of students of Citizen Foundation Gudap and Mehwish & Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation School, Mirpur Khas at the PM Office in Islamabad, Khaqan urged them to put in hard work and dedicated efforts to excel in their studies and take the Country forward on the path of success in all fields.

The prime minister has been having a regular interaction with the students of different schools from all over the Country as part of his initiative to apprise them of the working of the federal government, give them an insight into the internal working of the highest office of the Country, besides information about the Country’s parliamentary system. 

During the interactive session with the students of Citizen Foundation Gudap and Mehwish & Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation School, Mirpur Khas, the prime minister also answered their queries on a host of issues.

The prime minister said capable students from all over Pakistan had brought laurels for the Country and said only due to their devotion and hard work the dream of the founders of the Country could materialize. He asked the students to particularly focus in the sciences as there was a vast scope to excel.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the quest for knowledge continued throughout the lifetime of a person and asked the students not to be hesitate for a moment in their search for more understanding.

Abbasi said the focus of his government was on health and education sectors. He said though after the 18th Constitutional amendment those sectors had been devolved to the provinces, the federal government was playing its part and extending all cooperation to further strengthen those areas that were neglected in the past.

In this regard, he also appreciated the role of the private sector in the past few years in extending a helping hand to the government and stressed the need for maintaining quality and highest standards of education.

The prime minister was also briefed about the working of the Citizen Foundation Gudap and Mehwish and Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation School, Mirpur Khas. He asked the students about their extracurricular activities and hobbies.

The students also presented a national song to the prime minister reflecting their strong determination to counter extremism and terrorism and their pledge to defend their motherland against all threats.

The students visited various sections of the Prime Minister’s Office and were briefed about the working of different ministries and departments.
