DADU: The second passing out parade and parents’ day ceremony was held in a somber style at Bakhtawar Girls’ Cadet College in Nawabshah on Sunday.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) women wing president MPA Faryal Talpur, who was chief guest on the occasion, visited science and crafts fair held on the sidelines of the ceremony in which cadets had put on display handmade pieces of art representing all provinces and Azad Jammu & Kashmir and appreciated students’ works.

Speaking at the passing out ceremony, she said that when she had visited the college in 2018, only 60 students were enrolled and today the number had risen to 300. All credit for better education and training in the college went to teachers, she said.

She said that Benazir Bhutto always wished to see women playing a significant role in the development of the country and nation. “I have many memories attached to Nawabshah as I’ve got what I am from Nawabshah” said Ms Talpur.

“People of my city are very hardworking and loving. At the beginning of my political life, I faced so many difficulties that if there were a man in my place at that time, he might not have been able to compete,” she said.

She said that outside the four walls of the college, the passing out graduates would have to compete with society of men. The graduates must always remember their alma mater and make its name shine wherever they went in life, she said.

She said that God never allows one’s hard work to go waste. Parents who provided best education and training to their daughters were commendable. “I pray that Allah gives the passing out graduates a better future and they succeed to attain their goals,” she said.

Air Vice Marshal Khalid Mahmood also specially participated in the ceremony.

Provincial Education Minister Sardar Shah, former law minister Ziaul Hasan Lanjar, MPAs Ghulam Qadir Chandio, Qasim Siraj Soomro and Sadia Javed, party leader Ali Akbar Jamali and others were also present.

Earlier, Faryal Talpur received a grand welcome on her arrival at the college, with cadets presenting a salute to her during the march past. She also planted a sapling in the college, inaugurated the arts and science exhibition and the newly constructed hostel block.

She distributed prizes among position-holders and appreciated their passion and dedication.

She said that today’s function might be just a college activity for the guests here, but for her it was an opportunity to re-examine her dream. “The present moment reminds me of the days of struggle for the beginning and fulfillment of this dream,” she added.

Faryal Talpur further said that considering the success of this college, the provincial government had established the second Girls Cadet College in Larkana.
