Hussain Naqvi | 11 years ago | Reply PM has shown good gesture for the development of Education but there is a question mark that he announced the award for the most talented student of the prvince of Punjab while ignoring all other Public Universities of rest of the provinces.This is sheer descemenative treatment which needed to be reviewed by the Honourable PM.

Great Achievement. Prayers for his continued success.

On another note, hope the PM used his own money for the reward rather than our taxes
