KARACHI (APP) – It seems that the youth in Sindh is lacking interest in central superior services (CSS) and this vacuum can be filled by providing awareness and guidance to our students so that they can prepare well and opt for CSS exam.

These views were expressed by Provincial Minister for Youth Affairs, Syed Faisal Sabzwari, Vice Chancellor of Karachi University, Prof Dr Muhammad Qaisar, Prof Dr Shahana Urooj Kazmi and others while addressing the certificate distribution ceremony.

It was jointly organised by the Students’ Guidance, Counselling and Placement Bureau, University of Karachi and Sindh government.

A statement on Friday said that the ceremony was arranged to conclude the CSS Awareness Programme organised under Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Youth Development Programme, Sindh.

On this occasion, the Vice Chancellor said that the youth of urban areas of Sindh utilises only 6 percent of allocated quota in the CSS exam.

In order to fill the gap, it is imperative to seek help from the existing and retired CSP officers.

Faisal Sabzwari said that the government of Sindh was trying hard to open new doors of success for the youth of Sindh and especially for those who belong to the urban areas. In this connection frequent coordination with private sector is also in progress, informed the minister.

Sabzwari also announced that a tender will soon be opened for construction of new girls’ hostel in the University of Karachi.

Chief Coordinator of the Programme Prof Dr Shahana Urooj Kazmi said that it is very likely that this kind of awareness programmes will be organised in future with better prospects for the students.

A CSP officer, Haroon Malik, on this occasion, emphasised the importance of excellent verbal and written communication skills for success in the CSS exam.  Chairperson of the Department of International Relations, Prof Dr Shaista Tabbassum, informed the audience about various learning techniques and time management during preparation of the exam.

The event was hosted by lecturer Department of Public Administration Ghazal Khwaja.

Karachi University Registrar Prof Dr Nasiruddin Khan, Prof Dr Azhar Ali, Prof Dr Junaid Sagheer Siddiqui and a large number of KU teachers and students were present on the occasion.
