LAHORE – A great news is rolling in for about 1,00,000 (1 lac) students of Punjab province, who will get laptops from the provincial government.
The big news was revealed by the Punjab Minister for Excise and Taxation Mujtaba Shuja ur Rehman while talking to delegations of youth.
Sharing various projects by the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz led government for the education and youth, Shuja said that his government would carry out laptop distribution on merit this year too.
“As many as 1 lac laptops will be distributed among students,” he further said.
The provincial government is distributing laptops for last three years despite much criticism on the scheme. The opponents allege that this is not the wise use of the money from public funds; instead some solid measures in the education field should be focused upon.
On the other side, the provincial government thinks it is the right scheme for the promotion of the education as well as equipping youths with the modern skills.
In addition, the PMLN government seems to have gained a great benefit by this scheme as it has attracted a lot of students towards its government.
