    A province which is supplying gas to whole Pakistan, the number of students eligible for scholarship looks like a joke. At least one thousand should be given full scholarship with major universities especially private ones should come forward to save Pakistan.Recommend

    this incredible opportunity, although after many decades, would surely promote those talented students of Baluchistan who can make history of their own.
    the test and interview for these institutions should be monitored by unpressurized and not interfered by any socialism problem or by any politician or much much having person.
    i am always thankful to the government of Pakistan and the kind sponsors of pakistan and abroad who had helped promote my Allah,s gifted children like Naseemullah khan Saifullah khan.Recommend
