Federal govt pursuing policy of uniform development, says governor

Karachi:11May:The federal government is pursuing the vision of uniform development so that people in every area of the country could benefit, said Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair on Saturday.

He was talking to an eight-member delegation of the Pak Muslim Alliance, which was led by Amanullah Khan Parcha.

The governor informed the delegation that pace of development activities had been enhanced in backward areas to help bring them on par with the developed ones.

He said the federal government was focusing on uniform development in every area of the country. Zubair assured that steps would also be taken to resolve the problems of Bengalis living in the province.

The delegation also apprised the governor of the problems being faced by the Bengali community.

News Desk adds: Last month, Zubair had said that making Karachi a hub of events and activities like Dubai was his priority now that peace had been restored to the metropolis. “Karachi is a very peaceful city now,” he said while speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of a two-day international conference on innovation and emerging trends in business management, education and social sciences.

The conference was held at the Iqra University and organised in collaboration with the University of Karachi and the Sindh University. It was partially funded by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.

During his speech, the governor urged foreign delegates to spread the message in their home countries that Karachi was no more a dangerous city. He was of the view that Pakistan’s economic future “very much depends upon the development of Karachi”.

He stressed that within the last three to four years, the government had managed to bring about a turnaround in Karachi’s environment, and now it was ideal for commercial activity.

Zubair observed that higher educational institutions were considered measuring scales of success in any society and that youngsters after graduation became the need of their relevant disciplines.

He further stated that teaching on campus played a very important role in students’ lives, including their professional work.

If students had earned their degrees while doing research during their studies, it became a matter of pride not only for their intuitions but also for the country, he added.
