May 6, 2017

The provincial minister for education and literacy, Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar, directed on Friday the city’s intermediate education board chief, the director general colleges, and the director schools to take concrete steps to curb cheating in the ongoing annual examinations. 

He issued this order while presiding over a meeting at his office in the provincial assembly. Dahar also ordered the officers concerned to make it sure that students did not bring mobile phones inside the examination centres. 

Expressing his resentment over the use of unfair means during examinations, he directed the relevant officers to take radical steps to eradicate the cheating culture. He also asked them to provide a list of sensitive centres so that strict surveillance could be ensured over there.

Dahar also suggested forming more vigilance teams to monitor the situation and seek the help of police to handle miscreants at examination centres.

DG colleges Dr Nasir Ansar, BIEK chairman Professor Inam Ahmed and director schools Dr Riaz Ahmed Siddiqui attended the meeting. 

 

Surprise visit

The education minister paid a surprise visit to the Government School Qurtaba in Shireen Jinnah Colony.

During his visit, he inspected the ongoing construction work at the site. He also visited various classrooms and asked students about their studies.

Dahar expressed his displeasure over presence of dirt in the premises of the school building.  He directed the headmistress of the school to improve cleanliness.

He also directed the Education Works executive engineer (XEN), Jamil Memon, to ensure quality work in construction.

Dahar said he would not tolerate any corruption and compromise over quality of education.
