MARDAN: Special assistant to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister on higher education Mushtaq Ghani has said that a woman university would be established in Mardan.

He said the provincial government had been taking measures to end the prevalent education system, which divided the society into different classes.

Addressing a ceremony in connection with the fifth foundation day of the Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan here the other day, he said the provincial government had planned to give away scholarships to poor bright students.

Mr Ghani said that the government would provide quality education in medical, engineering, law and other professions to create true professionals.

The PTI lawmaker lauded the services of the vice chancellor Professor Ihsan Ali and administration of the Abdul Wali Khan University for establishing its campuses in other districts as well, promotion higher education in the province.

“Keeping in view the PTI chief Imran Khan’s focus on promotion of education in the province, the government has been taking measures to establish colleges and universities in very tehsil of the province,” he said.
