Punjab Governor Malik Rafiq Rajwana Saturday urged girl students to play their role by serving society and the nation after completion of their education, instead of sitting idle at home.
He expressed these views while addressing the first-ever convocation of Women University, here on Saturday.
‘Practically contribute to society and the nation by repaying the country which you owe to it,’ he said. He said that getting education in a university was not less than a blessings.
The governor said that women were engineers, fighter pilots these days, adding that female students were outshining their male counterparts. He said that a meeting of Vice Chancellors Committee would be convened soon on his suggestion, which will be presided over by the president of Pakistan, he said and added that prime minister may also attend it.
After the 18th Amendment, education has become a provincial subject and the VCs committee meeting had long been pending, Rajwana added. Appreciating teachers of special children, the governor said that it was quite difficult to impart education to special children.—APP
