The prime minister of Pakistan has allocated funds for fee reimbursement for students of underdeveloped areas studying for Masters, M.Phil and PhD in government universities. It is really an appreciable step, but why are students belonging to Central Punjab not included in this scheme? Central Punjab is as underdeveloped as Southern Punjab. Layyah and D.G.Khan have universities but Jhang has none. I would like to request that Jhang be included in the list of fee reimbursement scheme. Instead of fee reimbursement, fee should not be taken at all as parents either take loans or sell property to pay for the fee. Government must help our poor to gain education. This fee reimbursement scheme should be available for all the poor students of the country.
