Education and political change

After facing incessant corruption cases and an unbridled criticism of its policies, it was expected that this time the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would face tough time in Sindh. However, unexpectedly, as per the 2018 poll result, the party performed even much better than the previous general election; while the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) and other groups could not perform well. Now, the question arises: why the storm of change could not ensue in the Sindh province when it has overwhelmed the federal and other provinces. One of the reasons is the dwindling state of education in the province. The other federating units such as the Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) are far advanced in terms of education. So, the political consciousness in these provinces has fostered, which has resulted in political change. This vindicates that the relation between education and political change is inevitable and unless the condition of institutions is improved, the obsolete political system will continue to be the fate of the denizens of Sindh.
