LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said the only path leading to prosperity and development was education. He added it would bring vision, quality and cognizance in the country.
The chief minister expressed these views while speaking at a function held at Aiwan-e-Iqbal for the school enrollment campaign on Thursday.
“The Punjab government has taken several steps to promote education in the province,” he said.
“We will complete the target of enrolling every child in Punjab into a school before the election to ensure that no child is denied the right of an education.”
He said the quality education was not the right of the elites alone and steps would be taken to provide it to all. “We need to change this attitude, framework and culture and let the poor enjoy the benefits of education,” the CM remarked.
