Sir: As we all know that Balochistan is the largest province of Pakistan but unfortunately, no steps have been taken for the development of its educational sector which is extremely poor. It has been facing severe educational problems for the past several years.Shockingly, illiteracy is increasing at an alarming rate in the province. According to a report, literacy rate of Balochistan is 39 percent, which remains a burning issue in the education department of the province. The system is totally deteriorated because of sheer negligence of the present government and educational authorities. They are not persuaded to bring positive changes in the education sector. There are more than 12,500 primary schools in Balochistan. Among them, more than 7000 schools remain without access to basic educational facilitates which include power supply, clean drinking water, shortage of teachers, classrooms, course books, toilets, proper furniture and many more. In many other schools, students are studying under the open sky. Yet there has been no action taken by the provincial government.There are, as well, 5000 ghost teachers in Balochistan. They are not delivering their services but taking their salaries. They are devastating the future of the upcoming generation. So, I request to the government of Balochistan to bring about reforms in the educational sector and provide the citizens of Balochistan with a better educational system.
