Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information and Higher Education Kamran Bangash on this occasion said that the provincial government is working hard to take the universities out of the current financial crisis and make them truly knowledge and research centers.
“During the last one year, five of our universities have been included in the world ranking that speaks volumes of our government performance,” he added.
He was addressing the convocation ceremony of the academic session for 2018 at UoP as the Pro-Chancellor and chief guest while the Vice-Chancellor of the University Professor Dr Muhammad Idrees presided over the function. Secretary Higher Education Muhammad Daud Khan, Additional Secretary Governor Secretariat Saiful Islam, and other high-ranking officials, professors, scholars, and educationists also participated in large numbers.
A total of 291 graduates were awarded degrees, 202 of whom were female, while 18 Ph.D. and 19 Mphil scholars also received degrees. Whereas 27 brilliant students were awarded gold medals, including 19 female students.
Kamran Bangash in his address said that the smiles on the faces of the graduating students and their parents were in fact a matter of pride and our government wanted to see such everlasting smiles on the faces of the youth. He said the first year in an outgoing student’s life is a difficult year but the habit of accepting challenges is the starting point for success.

A lifelong learner can also lead to good leadership, he added. He said these two qualities take a person to great heights. He appreciated the dynamic role of VC Dr Muhammad Idrees for elevating the university to the climax of success.
He said that in the last four years, the UoP has not increased the fee by one rupee while the provincial government has so far provided financial assistance of Rs1 billion to the university.
Kamran Bangash clarified that purposeful education is the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and under the leadership of Chief Minister Mehmood Khan we are trying to ensure that the graduates of our universities are not to become job seekers but employers in real life.
Earlier, the chief guest Kamran Bangash and Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Muhammad Idrees distributed degrees and gold medals among the graduates.
