PM Khan lashes out at people opposed to Urdu University Hyderabad
HYDERABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan lashed out at critics who were opposed to the Federal Urdu University Hyderabad, on Thursday.
Speaking to attendees at the foundation laying ceremony of the Federal Urdu University in Hyderabad, the prime minister said that it was unfortunate how a certain mindset was opposed to establishing the university in Hyderabad.
“Unless we don’t educate our youth, the country cannot progress,” said the prime minister. “If we want Pakistan to go forward, we will have to educate the youth. The country will go backwards if our youth remain uneducated,” he added.
The prime minister said that a small country such as Singapore earned revenue amounting to $300 billion.
During his speech, Imran Khan lashed out at PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for speaking in English at the parliament.
“I was watching TV and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was speaking English at the parliament,” he said. “Ninety percent of our population does not understand English—for who are you speaking this language?” he asked.
The prime minister said that it was as strange as French being spoken in the German parliament.
During his speech, Prime Minister Imran Khan praised MQM ministers Farogh Naseem and Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui. He said that these were the two most decent ministers of his cabinet.
“I had said this before as well in earlier interviews—with the MQM, the PTI had a natural alliance. We were only opposed to the MQM when it came to militancy,” he said.
