Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Education and Professional Training, Senator Irfan Siddiqui Friday expressed his concern over opening of edu-cational institutions in Islamabad from July 01, ignoring the clear and unanimous instructions of the committee.
Earlier, the Standing Committee in its last meeting had directed the officials of the ministry to keep the educational institutions of the capital closed from July 01 to August 01 keeping in view the extreme hot weather, frequent power outages and hardships being faced by the parents, following the decision of Punjab government.
The institutions have been opened since July 01 despite assurance given by the Federal Secretary for Education during the meeting, ignoring the instruc-tions of the committee.
Secretary of committee on the directions of Chair-man Committee Senator Irfan Siddiqui, in a written letter to the ministry, expressed concern over ignor-ing the unanimous direction of the com-mittee with-out conveying the reasons for doing so.
