No IT university for women?
Lahore: In the Annual Development Programme for 2008-09, the Punjab government has allocated funds of Rs 26.6 million to complete the establishment of the Chief Minister Secretariat at 8-Club Road, GOR-I despite the fact that Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had announced to convert the building to an IT university for women. The previous government had constructed the CM Secretariat, a four-storeyed building on the 10-kanal plot: 8-Club Road, in 2006 to gather all scattered offices of the chief minister's officers under one roof. Earlier the chief minister's staff was working in three different offices on 1,3 and 7-Club Road. The building's construction cost about Rs 411.57 million. In the building 46 offices were made for a principal secretary, two special secretaries, four additional secretaries, 13 deputy secretaries, two personal staff officers, 12 section officers and several other ministerial staff. Two committee rooms, one kitchen and the chief minister's office were also constructed. After Shahbaz's announcement to convert the building into an IT university for women, the IT department surveyed the building to estimate the cost of the conversion and the equipments to be purchased.
