- Matric Exams were sacrificed for interests, Asma Ambassador
Karachi (July 07, 2021), Nazima Asma Safir of Jamaat-e-Islami Women’s Constituency Karachi has said that matriculation examinations have been sacrificed for the sake of interests.
The mismanagement has reached its peak since the Sindh Education Department came under the purview of the Sindh government.
He said that matriculation has always been an important academic year.
The students have reached the examination stage after hard work and repeated announcements. But here the examination process has also been made a source of disorder and earning. As a result, the students have been suffering from severe pain and mental retardation.
He said that instead of playing with the future of the children and putting the country at stake, the authorities should wisely advance the examinations and education system and not sacrifice this sector for politics.
Also, the mismanagement in the examination centers should be taken strict notice and action should be taken beyond political interests. Students should be provided a comfortable environment by setting up registered examination centers.
- The Incompetence Of The Education Department And Matriculation Board In Matric Examinations Has Come To Light: Tahir Malik
Karachi (July 07, 2021): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) central leader Tahir Malik has said that the Chief Minister should be ashamed of destroying the education system in Sindh.
The incompetence of the education department and the matriculation board in the matriculation examinations has come to the fore. The PPP government in Sindh is busy breaking its own record of incompetence.
The PPP government in Sindh is bent on darkening the future of students. In a statement issued from the party office, Malik further said that if there was any shame left in the education minister, he should resign immediately due to his incompetence.
PPP wants to take Sindh back to the Stone Age. Except for Sindh, there are no complaints of delay or paper out in examinations in any province.
Due to the corruption and incompetence of PPP, Sindh has lagged behind other provinces. At present, the rate of education in Sindh is lower than in other provinces.
In our hands, the youth of Sindh are stumbling for degrees. The education system in Sindh has been destroyed. By depriving the students of Sindh of quality education, the Sindh government is abusing them.
He added that the education department, like other departments, is ruled by corrupt officials. Leaking papers to students in exchange for money is now commonplace. The education minister is covering up his incompetence and chanting that everything is fine.
So far no investigation has been launched into the leak of matriculation and delay in the examination. We appeal to the Chief Justice of Sindh High Court to take so moto action on this matter and order a full investigation.
