Lahore -- Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has said the private sector is rendering valuable services in the education sector.
Speaking at the convocation of the University of South Asia, Elahi said a practical approach is essential for success in practical life after securing the degree. He said, 'Pakistan is the identity of all of us. Do not compare Muslims of India and Pakistan. Now the Two-Nation Theory has got prominence once again in India. Pakistan is a lone nuclear state in the Muslim world and its atomic programme is much better and safer than India.'
He said the government should facilitate the private sector and remove the hurdles set up by Shehbaz Sharif everywhere during the last 10 years of the PML-N government. 'We were setting up two international universities along the Sialkot motorway when I was the Punjab chief minister, but the PML-N government abolished those projects. As a result, these university projects were shifted to India. We started Rescue-1122 Service, which is now the best emergency service in the country,' he said.
Elahi said, 'We should all love our country. What is happening in India is before everyone's eyes. The Two-Nation Theory has now been vindicated. The Quaid-e-Azam and our elders had foreseen what Modi is now doing in India.'
