Govt Planning to Introduce Uniform Syllabus Across Country: Shafqat Mehmood

The government is trying to enforce an uniform curriculum in public and private institutions across country, Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood said Tuesday.

He spoke to a private TV channel and claimed that in consultation with the provinces the Government wanted a standardized education system.

He said the government would hold a conference to decide which language should be adopted in the country for primary education.

In coming months, Shafqat Mehmood said the uniform primary education curriculum can be implemented.

Replying to a question, he said the opposition did not have the capacity to create hurdles for the government in running affairs because people were well aware about their politics, adding both Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) were responsible for fragile economy and current inflation as they had done massive corruption during their government tenures.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was an independent institution and it was working without any political interference, he added.

The education minister said the government would take on board opposition on every national issue in the larger interest of the country, adding it had contacted with opposition over the passing of bills in the parliament.

He said Maryam Nawaz was convicted and could not go abroad.

Replying to another query about the killing of a journalist, he said an independent investigation should be held against the brutal killing of journalist Aziz Mamon.
