MURREE: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan urged teachers and educators to impart value-based education to the children to mould them into responsible citizens of the country.

He advised the management of Dar-e-Arqam to accelerate efforts for the development of an educational system that focuses on equipping the youth with competitive practical skills, knowledge and moral values.
He said that three types of educational system in Pakistan was not fulfilling our national needs an era of rapid progress, hence time has come to develop a uniform education system in the country to achieve our national objectives.
“Due to the diverse education system in Pakistan, the country was lagging behind in achieving desired national goals and it needs to be made uniformed and indigneousized,” Masood emphasized.

Terming China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as a blessing from Allah for the Pakistani nation, the President said that CPEC will help the country to develop its infrastructure, energy, agriculture and will hopefully transform the country into a regional economic hub. However, he said that it will not be wise to consider the project as a substitute for our overall economic development.
