QUETTA: Commander Southern Command Lieutenant-General Waseem Ashraf has said education serves as the ladder for development and prosperity of any nation, adding that without education there is no possibility of progress.
“Those nations, which didn’t focus on education, are facing backwardness today. The rising trend of girls getting enrolled in schools and colleges in Nushki is a good fortune for our future,” he said while addressing a ceremony organised in Cadet College Nushki on Wednesday.
