SBBU campus in Chitral demanded
Peshawar Zainul Abideen, a former member of the provincial assembly and erstwhile district president of the Pakistan People’s Party, has underscored the need for establishment of sub-campus of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University (SBBU) in Chitral.
In a statement, he said the federal government had approved establishment of the SBBU, Sheringal, Dir Upper sub-campus in Chitral but the decision had not been implemented for the last two years.
The former lawmaker said the government could establish the sub-campus even in a rented building if there was no state land for constructing a building. He deplored silence of the high-ups over this important issue, adding that the delay in implementing the project was a source of concern for Chitralis, who were already suffering because of the locational disadvantage. Zainul Abideen said: “It is strange that a district with 14,850 square kilometres area has been deprived of the university sub-campus,” he added. The news
