Khalid Shah, Faisal Khan Zai, Aftab Soomoro, Ashraf bin Muhammad and other representatives of the Association were also present on the occasion.

The Minister requested the office bearers of private schools management not allow any government teacher to teach in their institutions in school timings as it was a violation of the rules and if he found anyone doing so, the action would not only be taken against the teacher but the institute would also be brought to task. The Minister for Education added, ‘It is right time to develop an atmosphere of trust between the government and the private sector because together we will be able to achieve the target of 100 percent literacy rate in the province’.
