Free textbooks await distributionSeptember 2, 2014
KARACHI: A large number of free textbooks provided by federal government for distribution in Sindh are yet to be distributed by the education department.
A large number of free-of-cost books from class one to five have not been distributed in government schools for several years. These books are stocked on the 5th floor of KDA building in Civic Centre.
Sources told that the books that were provided to be distributed among poor children were being rotten in godowns. This shows negligence and corruptness of the concerned officers. A huge amount had been allocated for the program to distribute books in the four provinces but all the wealth had been wasted.
An official of provincial education department said inquiry was being made in this regard and strict action would be taken against the negligent officers.
