Costly machinery is rusting in govt depts, VC tells trainers
Hyderabad: Machinery worth tens of millions of rupees are rusting and gathering dust in many Sindh government departments as officials were too naïve to operate these due to lack of training.
This information was shared by Vice-Chancellor, Sindh Agriculture University, Dr Abdul Qadir Mughal at the concluding session of a training course on 'soil and water testing machines' at the campus on Friday.
Huge sums of public money get wasted when costly machines are purchased by certain departments, and over a period of time become redundant as these lay unused on account of absence of know-how, he said.
He said the world was fast progressing as it was keeping pace with the latest innovations but here in Pakistan, people are too laid-back to get themselves involved in new approaches and ideas.
This training course, he hoped, would help in utilizing these machines not only for water and soil testing but also for making use of water waste, he said asked other departments to take a cue by embarking upon training courses.
Prof Dr Shamsuddin reminding scholars that that water was life for all living things, whether man, animal or plant, therefore it was necessary to protect soil through application of machines.
Dr Mehrunnisa Memon delving on training course said that not only teachers and staffers but those affiliated with the Agriculture Department, the National Sugar Crops Research Institute and soil and water testing laboratories too, have benefited heavily and it was now obligatory on them to encourage machinery use in their respective areas of operation.
Sindh University Prof Dr Iqbal Bhangar and Prof Dr Mohammad Saleem Akhtar of Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi, conducted the training course.
School plot occupied, allege protesters
Dadu: The move to construct a building on the plot selected for boys' primary school distressed the students and area people who held a demo outside the press club on Friday.
A large number of people of Bukhari colony carrying placards and banners demanded evacuation of the encroacher from the school plot.
One of the protesters said that the Sindh government approved construction of a building for boys' primary school some six months ago and a plot of railways, measuring 5,000ft was selected which had been occupied by an influential man and complaints to district administration fell on deaf ears.
Another protester appealed to senior officers of railways and district administration to take notice and evacuate the plot.
Meanwhile, Mehar Khoso told reporters that he was in possession of valid documents of the purchased plot. Dawn
