LAHORE: The government would establish more women universities in the province, the Punjab Assembly was told here on Monday.
Higher Education Minister Raja Yassir Humayun said during the Question Hour the government intended to set up more women universities in the province and the projects would be executed soon after resources were available for the purpose.
He told a questioner that the allegations of use of substandard material in the construction of buildings for educational institutions must be investigated. He said the department would request the chief minister for action against the Communications and Works Department officials for the poor construction of various colleges’ buildings.
Replying to a questioner, he said though he believed that there should be a college in each provincial assembly’s constituency, the government was not going to establish new colleges and was rather focusing on completing the buildings and missing facilities of the existing institutions.
