Rind says govt paying full attention to education sector

He said the shortage of teachers in public sector schools was badly affecting the standard of education. With the approval of the provincial government, the provincial education depart­ment would soon start appointing 1,200 teachers. He said all appointments would be made on the basis of merit and only qualified candidates would be appointed on vacant positions.

While talking about the political situation in the country, he alleged that resources of Balochistan were not utilised properly in the past. Resources of the province should be utilised properly and the government was working in this regard, he added.

The present government was committed to serve the people, he said, adding that the government was following a policy of zero tolerance for corruption and would ensure across-the-board accountability in the country.
