Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has laid the foundation of Education City in Karachi that is spread over an area of 9,000 acres. It would offer a blend of junior schooling, higher learning as well as educational and vocational training. It will provide students with a wide range of exciting and challenging programmes meeting the needs of those students who wish to study abroad. The target number of institutions is 50 to 70, housing an estimated population of 1,50,000 students. It would have been better if the Education City would have been set up in Hyderabad instead of Karachi as Karachi being capital of Sindh is already enjoying good educational facilities. Hyderabad is the second largest city of the province and it would have been appropriate if Education City project is shifted to Hyderabad because it is the duty of elected government to ensure development of whole province and not only one city at the cost of rest of province. I strongly regret the Sindh governments callous attitude in neglecting Interior Sindh in terms of mega development programmes like army dictator General (r) Musharraf had done during his 9-year long tenure and appeal to Sindh government to shift the project to Hyderabad to ensure that other parts of provinces are not neglected in education sector.
