Instead of building an office of the Sindhi Language Authority on the premises of the historical DJ College in Karachi, the Sindh government should built that office inside either the Bilawal House or Chief Minister House. Karachi Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Hafiz Naeemur Rehman stated this during his visit to the DJ College.
He announced on the occasion that the party would continue resisting the Sindh government’s move to convert a part of the historical college’s building into an office of the Sindhi Language Authority.
He also lauded the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association and the action committee comprising students of the college for voicing concern over what he said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government’s conspiracy to encroach upon the prestigious educational institute of Karachi. Expressing concern over a steep decline in admissions offered in the college, construction work at the heritage building for government offices and shortage of teachers as well as classrooms in the educational institute, Rehman demanded that the PPP government establish government offices at either the Bilawal House or the CM House instead of reducing classrooms in the DJ College.
He said the Sindh government had allocated Rs326 billion in the education and literacy budget of the province. Of the total amount, Rs29 billion was allocated for the colleges, he added. He criticised the Sindh government for failing to initiate MSc classes at the DJ College during the last 10 years.
