Education in Sindh Province By ‘Yousuf Sajjad’

A COMBINATION of the Sindhi legacy and the preservation and emergence of a Sindhi middle class meant that the Sindhi voter remained indebted to the Bhutto-Zardari combine for the 2013 election cycle. However, if the current Sindh government does not pick itself out of the governance morass it has entangled itself in, it could lose its standing in the province. Emblematic of this governance morass is lackluster attitude of Sindh govt towards educating its own people.
