KARACHI: Pasban-e-Pakistan President Altaf Shakoor has demanded the rulers of Sindh stop tinkering and experimenting with the education sector of the province and save it from corrupt waderas who have damaged the province almost beyond repair.
In a statement issued on Saturday, he said the approval of the Sindh Universities Institution Laws (Amendment) Bill would prove to be the last nail in the coffin of the education system in Sindh. He said the ruling party, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), is bent on destroying everything in the name of democracy.
Almost 95% of taxpayers' money is already going in the pockets of the corruption mafia, he said, adding that Muttahida Quami Movement - Pakistan only staged a protest drama in the Sindh Assembly against the controversial law that would put the universities of Sindh in the lap of corrupt waderas.

He said the PPP, which represents waderas, is against education because waderas consider education the main threat to their rule. He said thousands of government schools are closed in the province.
After destroying all other sectors, the rulers are now bent on damaging the education sector. He warned that Pasban would raise a voice against handing over control of Sindh's universities to semi-literate but fully corrupt waderas.
