ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister of Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood on Friday slammed the PML-N and said that the PML-N is playing politics with students to gain cheap popularity.
In his tweet, Mahmood said that: “Saad Rafiq/Ahsan Iqbal should know if they claim to be educated that exams are the best measure of students ability and class 12 important as they have to go to universities and professional colleges.”
“Why should hardworking students be discriminated against. Stop cheap politics,” he added.
The minister further said that Saad Rafique and Ahsan Iqbal should know if they claim to be educated that exams are the best measure of students’ ability.
He said that it is crucial for students of class 12 to take the exams as they have to go to universities and professional colleges.
“Why should hardworking students be discriminated against. Stop cheap politics,” the minister wrote.
Mehmood wrote that the two leaders should know that after the 18th amendment, out of the 30 educational boards across the country, only one board, i.e. the federal board, was given to the federal government, while other boards are governed by the respective provinces and other bodies.
“Yet they [Ahsan Iqbal and Saad Rafique] were pretending that one order from a federal minister can stop exams across the country. Again just a failed attempt at cheap politics,” the minister wrote while censuring the statements of the PML-N leaders.
