Purpose-built building of 160th school of GCT inaugurated in Mithi Governor Zubair laments Sindh govt spent less than 40% health, education budget in previous fiscal year By Imtiaz Dharani MITHI: Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair has lamented that just less than 40 per cent of Sindh government budget of previous financial year reserved for health and education sectors could be utilized as this indicates one of the major reasons Sindh has been lagging far behind rest of the country as far as provision of health and educational facilities to its people is concerned. Sindh Governor stated this while speaking as the chief guest as he inaugurated the new purpose-built building of 160th chairtable school of Green Crescent Trust (GCT) here in Mithi on Sunday. “Lately the Sindh government identified some 290 small and big projects to be developed in health and education sectors as budgetary allocations were also reserved to do these projects. Not a single penny could be spent on 170 of these projects. This raises a big question mark over capacity and competence of the provincial government to carry out such a work,” he said. He said that performance in health and education sectors of provincial governments in last five years would count much as three different ruling political parties of Sindh, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would soon contact people to solicit votes from them for forthcoming general elections. He said that people should question these ruling parties about their past performance and future road map to provide health and educational facilities to masses. “Provision of basic facilities and necessities of life like provision of health, education, clean drinking water, road infrastructure facilities are all the constitutional obligations of the government as after the 18th Constitutional Amendment, these all are the responsibilities of provincial governments. But that doesn’t mean the federal government would sit idle and do nothing for provision of such facilities,” said the governor. “What the federal government could best do was provision of maximum financial assistance to provincial governments to By Vijay kumar demo was held under the S H A H E E D banner of All Sindh BENAZIRABAD: A group Education Department of employees of local Lower Staff Association for Education Department took out a large rally which acceptance of their genuine demands.

The governor said all national and internationallevel credible surveys had duly pointed out that state of basic education in Sindh had been worse than that of the other provinces. “That is the situation when education sector of Pakistan has been lagging behind that of many regional countries like India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka,” said the governor.
