LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President and former prime minister Ch Shujat Hussain has said constitutional amendments undertaken on majority cannot be successful. He will contact all parties’ chiefs for getting amendments contrary to Pakistan, people and particularly educational interest rejected.

In a statement issued here on Tuesday, he said different parties’ leaders have given statements on the 18th Amendment and majority of them commented on the amendment without reading it. On the basis of majority some such amendments have been done in which future generations have been kept in dark about the history of the country. He said: “Our party thinks only about the interest of Pakistan, particularly the amendment which has been done in matters of education. I will talk to the chiefs of all parties that they should also reject this amendment passed on the majority basis.

In any constitution of the world academic syllabus is one and that is with the federation. By empowering the provinces, they have spoiled standard of education, because in this way every province will make syllabus of its own choice, whereas this power should be with the federation.

There are other amendments also, which they got approved on the basis of majority which had failed. We will oppose every such amendment in and outside the assembly, which will not be in the interest of the country and the nation.”
