“A university will be started early in Taunsa along with the completion of the unfinished the cadet college project in Fort Munro. Meanwhile, the recruitment rules are being relaxed to overcome the shortage of teachers in Taunsa and other backward areas.”

“Similarly, the government has started a scholarships programme to help underprivileged students to continue their studies.”
