a volley of supplementary questions by MPAs during Sindh Assembly
session on Friday, Haq said that he would have liked to make further
startling disclosures on the issue, but it would "cause an alarm" in
the House. He said it was because of this reason that the PPP had
raised the issue before the Core Committee that schools should be given
back to the provincial government.

dilapidated buildings could be higher since local government
authorities did not give him reliable figures, adding, he has ordered

around 500 school buildings in Dadu were in dilapidated condition,
while the list provided by the minister revealed only 16 such schools,

the schools in Dadu, Haq said that the local governments were
responsible for it. He said that out of Rs100 million, the Hyderabad
government did not spend a single penny to repair 71 schools there.

said that all the districts had been given equal funds on the World
PML-F's Nusrat Abbasi said that when the

private schools include: enhancement in tuition fee, "illegal
activities" by school management, complaints regarding admission,
