KP Government now planning to introduce uniforms in public sector universities
The governor said that although the universities are working on public money, they aren't ready for an audit or establishing discipline.
The Governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Shah Farman has unveiled plans to introduce a few changes in public universities, which include introducing a uniform for students.
Introduction of reforms
The provincial government is considering these amendments to introduce a body that will supervise the academic and financial performance. This will bring transparency, accountability, and discipline in these institutes.
The governor said that although the universities are working on public money, they aren’t ready for an audit or establishing discipline. He added that varsities should be bound to implement the decision of their respective senates.
“I am shocked at the condition of universities, their administration is unable to explain their budgets. These varieties first take the money and then they think about where to spend it”, he said.
Governor Farman said he wanted to introduce standard uniforms in the public sector universities, and all departments would have the choice to choose different uniforms.
According to him, the expensive and high-end designer clothes create an inferiority complex amongst students and this causes further problems.
