A large number of meritorious students are left out due to inadequate capacities in existing universities
All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organization (APMSO) has called for establishing engineering universities in Sindh, particularly Karachi in view of the increasing demand for engineering education. In a statement, the central cabinet of the APMSO, urged upon President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad and Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to establish government engineering universities in the province as a large number of meritorious students are left out due to insufficient capacities in the existing government universities.
They said that there has been an enormous increase the population, but no government university has been established in the province for the past 16 years. They said that there are only three public sector engineering universities in the province but the number of students passing aspiring to get engineering education is very high. They said the establishing of new government engineering universities is of utmost importance because poor-and-middle class students cannot afford expensive engineering education in private sector universities.
