KARACHI: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz is currently viewed as the party most concerned with state of education. This perception, coupled with the fact that 73% people prioritise education policies when deciding who to vote for, can have wide-reaching political ramifications during the forthcoming polls.
Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aaghai and Alif-Ailaan, non-governmental organisations, have started an extensive campaign, urging the national political leaders to join all the collaborative efforts being made to make education a top priority nationwide and by, in turn, mobilising votes for education.
ISLAMABAD: With a call for politicians to make education their top priority, over 40 religious scholars from across Pakistan huddled on Wednesday and cited education as the only cause for the rise and fall of the Muslim Ummah in the past and present.
Voices for education were raised across the country with the Alif Ailaan campaign shifting up a gear in the run-up to the elections in Rawalpindi, Hafizabad and Toba Tek Singh.
