Lahore : Punjab Governor/Chancellor Punjab University Malik Muhammad Rafique Rajwana has said that the politics of agitation will damage democracy and the people who want to be in government should adopt democratic way and strengthen parliament after winning elections.
He was addressing the laptop distribution ceremony at Punjab University Faisal Auditorium here on Thursday.
PU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran, Executive Director HEC Prof Dr Arshad Ali, senior faculty and administrative officials of PU, HEC’s officials and a large number of students were present on the occasion.
Addressing the ceremony, Malik Muhammad Rafique Rajwana said that protest was a democratic right but the politics of agitation and resistance had never benefitted any democracy in the world. He said that we should not level baseless allegations of corruption against each other to malign other’s repute. Rather we should focus on the success of Zarb-e-Azab, he added.
The governor said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor would prove game changer for the progress of Pakistan and the young people must play their role for the development of the country. He said that Pakistan was full of talented people and our journey to progress must not stop. He said that the government had launched several schemes to empower youth and utilize their energies.
PU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran said that today’s young people were lucky that they had opened their eyes in the age of internet. He said that the invention of internet had made access to information and correspondence very easy. He said that the invention of printing machines and publication of books had also played important role in promotion of education.
However, the world is accessible only on one click because of internet, he added. He lauded the efforts of PML-N government for educational development of the country. Executive Director HEC Dr Arshad Ali said that because of prime minister’s laptop scheme, the efficiency of students had improved manifold since previously they were lacking such digital resources and had limited access to the internet.
He said that as many as five hundred thousand laptops were being distributed among the talented students on merit during the five-year tenure of the incumbent government.
On the occasion, Malik Muhammad Rafique Rajwana distributed laptops among PhD scholars.
Later, PU VC Dr Mujahid Kamran presented souvenir to the governor.
