Punjab schools' classroom activities

Classroom activities to resumetoday
Lahore, April 20: Classroom activities in all Punjab schools will be resumed on Friday (today) while candles will be lit to create awareness about inequalities in the education system.

Teachers under the banner of the Muttahida Mahaz Asatiza, Punjab chapter, however, decided on Thursday to continue boycott of USE/UPE survey to press for the acceptance of their demands.

From April 23 to 28, educational seminars would be arranged at divisional level all over the province and people belonging to all walks of life would be invited to participate. Muttahida Mahaz Asatiza Punjab chairman Hafiz Abdul Nasir said after a meeting.

Candles would be lit at major intersections in divisional headquarters after sunset from April 30 to May 5.

He said that in case teachers' posts were not upgraded, denial of time scale and change in the curriculum for the sake of change continued, they would hold demonstrations in front of the press clubs all over Punjab on May 2.

"United under one banner, we will continue raising voice against the delaying tactics of bureaucracy to solve even day-to-day problems of our colleagues and deprive them of their lawful rights," said Mr Nasir who was flanked by Sultan Mahmood Akhtar, Hafiz Ghulam Mohyuddin, Abdul Razzaq Niazi and others.

He said the discriminatory treatment being meted out to teachers should come to an end. A ban on casual leave cannot be justified under any law of the land. Dawn

Lahore: Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shahbaz Sharif said that implementation of school reforms and promotion of education in the province had yielded positive results. He vowed that 100 percent enrollment of children will be ensured in Punjab and no child will be deprived of educational facilities.

He said that a target of enrollment of 3.1 million children in the province had been fixed for the current year. He added that officers showing good performance with regards to development of the education sector and implementation of the roadmap for promotion of education will be encouraged, while action will be taken against those showing negligence.

He was addressing a meeting regarding Universal Enrollment Campaign 2012 in the province, at Danish School, Chishtian, on Thursday.

British educationist Sir Michael Barber, Provincial Education Minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman, Adviser Raja Ashfaq Sarwar, divisional commissioners of Multan, Bahawalpur and Dera Ghazi Khan, district coordination officers and EDOs were present on the occasion.

The CM said that the aim of progress and development cannot be achieved without education and in view of this fact, the Punjab government had taken revolutionary measures for promotion of education in the province.

He said that the school reforms programme was being implemented successfully in the province, adding that special measures were being adopted for the promotion of education in south Punjab.

He said that modern and quality education had been made available to the children of the common man and the poor through the Danish schools.

The CM said that in addition to upgrading the living standards in backward areas of south Punjab, the Danish School System would also help in eliminating extremism, poverty and unemployment. He said that instructions had been issued to the officers concerned for the implementation of roadmap for educational development.

Shahbaz said he strictly believed in a reward and punishment system, hence, officers showing good performance will be awarded with prizes. He issued orders for the immediate suspension of EDOs (Education) of Lodhran and Dera Ghazi Khan for unsatisfactory performance and also directed EDOs (Education) of Rahim Yar Khan, Muzaffargarh and Rajanpur to improve their performance. He directed the commissioner to personally monitor the enrollment campaign and ensure strict implementation of the roadmap.

Separately, while addressing assembly members and PML-N office-bearers belonging to district Bahawalnagar, the CM said that upholding of merit was essential for development and prosperity of the country, adding that all appointments and programmes across the province were being monitored.

He said that even the worst critics of his government could not point out any violation of merit in any sector. He said that party workers were precious assets and they should work sincerely to transform the country in accordance with the ideals of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal.

The CM disclosed that a development package would be announced soon for district Bahawalnagar. He asked the assembly members to submit their proposals and schemes in this regard. Shahbaz said that the provincial government considered service to the masses as a kind of worship, hence, all available resources were being utilised for public welfare. Daily times

'China a stability factor in dangerous world'
Lahore: At a seminar "Pak-China Relations: Trade & Economic Cooperation," Punjab University (PU) Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran said China had been a major factor of stability in an increasingly dangerous world.

A press statement here on Thursday said the moot was organized by PU Pakistan Study Centre. The VC said threat to global peace and the very survival of human beings was from US militarism after 9/11.

Jiangsu University Vice-President Zhou Ruguang, its Pakistan Study Centre Director Sun Hongqi, Advisor to the centre and People's Daily' Wangnan, senior faculty members and students attended the seminar. PU VC further said the people of United States were peace loving and wonderful but a cabal of international bankers controlled US government, media and Congress. He said it brought US forces to Central Asia and Africa on the pretext of terrorism, which they had created, promoted and fanned.

He said China was our time-tested and all-weather friend with deep bonds of love and mutual respect. He said we should learn from China that wanted to become super power of knowledge. He said our main problem was that people did not know each other so we should learn Chinese language to remove the language barrier. The news
