KARACHI, April 25: Sindh Senior Minister for Education Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq has said that 19 thousand teachers would be recruited to meet shortage of teachers in educational institutes of the province in collaboration with the World Bank.
In a statement issued on Wednesday he said that his department believed in recruiting these teachers based on merit and added that the vacancies had been advertised.
He said that they had taken into consideration financial difficulties faced by young applicants and had thus reduced the form fees from Rs300 to Rs30 – an amount received solely as bank charges.
He also said that the vacancies would be filled at the union council level and forms would not be accepted for those union councils where there were no vacancies.
The senior minister argued that certain anti-education elements were conducting a baseless propaganda against positive initiatives taken by his department.
He emphasised the fact that all vacancies would be filled on merit and the applicants should have faith in the education department and not heed rumours.—PPI
