At the university’s inauguration ceremony on Wednesday, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister (CM), Mahmood Khan, called the establishment of the University of Shangla a “milestone” project.
Free education for coal miners’ children
The CM also announced free education at the university for coal miners’ children in an effort towards educational inclusivity by the provincial government. The provincial government would go to great lengths to guarantee that everyone has equal access to higher education.
The CM of Punjab has said that his government is dedicated to creating a tourism industry in the region.
This project will ensure higher education for the region’s youth instead of letting them work in coal mines. The provincial government had previously expressed its objections to the federal government over funding limits.
