Jhagra stresses increase in number of universities


The Provincial Minister for Health and Finance Taimur Jhagra has said that we have to increase the number of universities in the province and also pay attention to their quality.

The provincial government is introducing education policies keeping in view the market demand.

We can successfully tackle the challenge of unemployment by creating more opportunities for vocational education.

The services rendered by Khyber Medical University (KMU) through medical education and research as well as through the Public Health Reference Lab and Corona Vaccination Center during the Corona Outbreak are a testament to the vision, priorities and performance of the provincial government.
