The chief guest for the day was Raza Haroon, a member of the Sindh Assembly. He spoke about the wealth of diversity we are enriched with in Pakistan and when we look beyond, the many cultures of the world we can respect and learn from these.
Shakeel A. Akram of the English Biscuit Manufacturers, the lead sponsors of YLC, addressing the youth emphasised that each individual has to play his part in building the nation and when 80 million youth unite to do so, with faith and discipline, there is no doubt that we will embark on the road to prosperity, he added.
