‘Media damaging education dept’


Senior Minister for Education and Literacy Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq said the Sindh education department allowed 353 teachers through a notification to work part time in media or NGOs after performing their professional duties, however, they should not take undue advantage of this relaxation and must pay attention towards teaching the students.
In a statement issued here on Friday, he said it was really unfortunate that a private TV channel and its newspaper group was not permitting 76 teachers to perform professional duties, on the other hand the said group had established a front against the Sindh education department.
Pir Mazhar added: ‘The education department has given relaxation to the said teachers to do part time work. The said newspaper group is not permitting these teachers to perform teaching duties. On the contrary, it has been publishing concocted stories against the department.
