MANSEHRA: The chief minister’s special advisor on population, Ahmad Hussain Shah, on Thursday said that land dispute of Government Girl’s High School, Goschain would shortly be settled to start the academic session there.

“I have directed the Education Department to settle the land issue with its owner and appoint teachers and other staff for the early start of the education session at this lone girls’ college,” Shah told a group of Goschain residents here.

The locals apprised him of the problems faced by the girl students after passing out of middle schools in the remote scenic part of the district.

They said almost all the girl students of Goschain and dozens of neighbouring villages stop receiving education as there was no other high school for girls in the area.

“The owner of land acquired for this girl college should be paid the compensation amount to settle this issue once and for all,” said one of the locals.

The advisor to the chief minister said that the government also wanted to build roads and other infrastructure in the area to promote tourism there.

“The lush green meadows, high mountains and springs are the unmatched features of this heavenly Goschain area and if the government includes it in its tourism promotion attraction, the employment opportunities for locals as well as people from other parts of Hazara division would increase,” Shah said.
