KARACHI: Pakistan People's Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Saturday that he wanted every kid, whether boy or girl, enrolled for education in Sindh and rest of the country.

"Education is the only weapon to defeat the evil spread by ignorance and illiteracy," Bilawal Bhutto said while presiding over a meeting held to review efforts being made by Sindh government for improving education and literacy in the province. The meeting was attended by Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Education Minister Jam Mehtab Dehar, Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) Managing Director Naheed S Durrani and others.

The team, led by Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, briefed the PPP chairman about steps and action taken by the Sindh government in the education sector and improvement in enrolment of out-of-school children. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that education had always been a key priority in the party manifesto. He urged the Sindh government to play a more proactive role in achieving the goals. The PPP chairman said that though the Sindh government has reopened thousands of closed schools, but he wanted illiteracy to be completely eradicated. He pointed out that World Bank had appreciated the smart solutions adopted by the Sindh government to improve education.

Earlier, the World Bank had highlighted the efforts of the Sindh School Monitoring System in promoting education.
