ISLAMABAD: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairman Pakistan People’s Party has lambasted the discriminatory attitude of Nawaz Sharif government towards thousands of government school teachers of FATA who are being denied up-gradation of their posts like done in entire country.
“This is the time that government should treat people of FATA equal to all the citizens of Pakistan and end its double-standard approach to the teachers of FATA,” Bilawal Bhutto said in statement issued here.
Expressing his solidarity with the protesting government teachers from FATA, the Pakistan People’s Party Chairman assured them that his Party was fully committed to provision of all the required facilities, including the up-gradation of their posts for the improvement of education.
He criticized the government for neglecting the demands of FATA teachers despite knowing that more than half a million school-age children in the FATA regions are out of school due to lack of education facilities.
Bilawal Bhutto asked the government to immediately accept all the genuine demands including up gradation of their posts, payment of arrears and provide universal facilities to the teaching community in the entire country.
