Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday said that the year 2021 would witness the implementation of uniform syllabus policy across the country till matriculation.
“We have devised a policy under one-nation, one curriculum project and its implementation up to matriculation will begin across the country from 2021,” he said while addressing a conference at Pind Dadan Khan.
He said it was tragic that in the last 70 years no focus has been devoted to improving seminary situations and the students remained ignored and did not belong to the state.
“Billions were earmarked for improving education standards but no money was diverted towards improving seminaries’ status.”
He said that they have prepared the uniform syllabus with the consultation and approval of the seminaries.
Speaking on US-Taliban deal to bring peace in Afghanistan, Chaudhry said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was a supporter of peace talks from the beginning and the Doha agreement has acknowledged the role Pakistan played for the peace process.
“Both sides have extended their gratitude towards Pakistan for facilitation during the peace process,” he said adding that it would also bring peace and prosperity in Pakistan.
