For providing a better quality of higher education to the youth, the provincial government of Punjab has agreed upon the building of a university in Murree. The opportunity would facilitate the students both male and female to acquire education at their doorsteps instead of traveling to far off places.
Talat Mehmood Gondal the Acting Commissioner of Rawalpindi Division/ Deputy Commissioner expressed these views during a meeting on Wednesday.
Naureen Bashir Director Development attended the meeting along with Prof Dr. Samina Amin Qadir—Vice Chancellor of Fatima Jinnah Women University, Malik Asghar—Director Colleges, Arif Ullah Awan—AC Murree, Attique ur Rehman—ACG and many other officials and supervisors of the higher education department and forest department.
The commissioner while addressing the meeting instructed the attendees to conduct a survey for the construction of University in Murree and to submit the report to his office.
He also advised the authorities to select a dispute-free land for the construction of the university. He also said that the university to be built should be given the status of a sub-campus of some already functioning university in the main city.
He also added that the government is trying hard to solve the basic problems of the people with dedication and honesty and is allocating big amounting budgets to provide superior quality education to the local residents at their doorstep.
This is an important and major step taken by the Punjab government. Many students who are the locals of Murree fails to get higher education because of traveling or financial issues. Constructing a university within the area would definitely provide youth to pursue their education and to acquire good education and knowledge for the betterment of their lives and well beings.
