QUETTA: President Dr Arif Alvi has said that resources under the NFC Award are distributed on the basis of population and the federal govern­ment is committed to providing additional funds to Balochistan to remove the sense of deprivation from the province.

He expressed these views while presiding over a me­­eting on rehabilitation of special persons at Governor House here on Monday.

He said it was important to make disabled persons useful citizens of society and for this purpose the scope of Vocational Training Centres had to be expanded.

The president’s wife, Begum Samina Arif Alvi, Balochistan Governor Syed Zahoor Agha, Chief Minis­ter Mir Abdul Qudoos Bize­n­­­jo, Chief Secretary Mathar Niaz Rana and WHO repre­sentative Maryam Malik were also present in the meeting.

APP adds: Speaking at a ceremony organised by Dar-ul-Falah, President Alvi said that nations could not be developed without education and promotion of quality education.

Paying homage to educa­tional service of the insti­tution established in 1926, the president said that the role of Muslim dignitaries, including Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, was a shining chapter in the setting up and promotion of educational institutions in the Indian subcontinent.
