This is to appreciate the highly commendable step taken by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif of distributing free laptops to deserving students on merit. In this high-tech era, laptops are an essential requirement. This is one step forward in the direction of “parha likha Punjab”.
Distributing laptops among students from taxpayers’ money is like putting icing on a rotten cake. Have the Punjab government succeeded in providing basic facilities to government schools such as infrastructure, books, teachers, labs, furniture etc?
