KARACHI: Sindh assembly here Monday rejected an adjournment motion against running of private schools illegally in Sukkur region.
Nusrat Bano Seher Abbassi of PML-F said this assembly may be adjourned to discuss the definite and important matter of public concern that there are more than 100 private schools are running in Sukkur region without fulfilling the legal requirements and some officials of Directorate Private Schools Education’s recommendation committee are also involved in issuing registration certificates to their schools without the approval of the competent authority.
Nusrat Bano Seher Abbasi insisted that this issue pertains to education of our future generation and it should be discussed in the House. She said the state of education in Sindh province was poor and warrants immediate attention. However, senior education minister Nisar Ahmed Khuhro (PPPP) opposed the motion. He said the number of such schools was not one hundred but much more less. He said the adjournment motion was hit by the rules. However, Ms Abbasi spoke on the admissibility of her motion, but the chair rejected the adjournment motion as non-maintainable and out of order.
