LAHORE  -  Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that education is a national mission and the government is striving hard to accomplish this mission. 

Talking to media, she said that 27,512 primary and elementary schools in the province will be upgraded at the cost of Rs50 billion in a phased manner.   Dr Firdous said that the former rulers infringed upon the education department to destabilize the system. 

She added that the incumbent government is revamping the education department and is determined to defeat the narrative of Jati Umrah with the candle of knowledge. 

Responding to Rana Sanaullah’s statements, she said that those who are responsible for Model Town carnage should avoid talking about the supremacy of law and constitution because everybody knows about their past misdeeds. 

Regrettably, Pakistan has failed to uphold the rule of law because people like Nawaz Sharif and his henchmen wasted forty long years of this nation, she added.  The Special Assistant said that Rana Sanaullah resorted to hooliganism and violence in the Daska by-election to make the process controversial.  The irony of the fate is that the PML-N is still unable to understand that the country is being ruled by law and justice and their heydays are over. She asserted that the PTI will emerge as a victorious party in the Daska constituency because people have full trust and confidence over the PTI leadership and they know that PML-N means corruption and plunder while PTI stands for strengthening of institutions, good governance and better service delivery.  The self-appointed PML-N head Maryam Safdar will continue to get nothing except defeat, disgrace, and humiliation at every front, concluded the SACM.
