LAHORE - President, Peoples Labour Bureau (PLB), Ch Manzoor Ahmad on Sunday condemned Prime Minister Gilanis recent statement that nationalisation of educational institutions by the then PPP government in the early 70s was a mistake. Addressing a seminar organised by PLB, an allied wing of the PPP, to mark the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 in Russia, Ch Manzoor said that Z.A Bhutto had taken a right decision at a right time to make education accessible to the children of working classes. Had he not taken this decision, education would have been confined only to the children of the capitalists and feudals, he observed, adding that it was due to this policy of then PPP government that education was made affordable for the poor. The labour leader said that all labour organisations would resist Punjab governments decision to privatise colleges in the government sector. He described these institutions as an asset of the nation, and not an inherited property of some feudal. The PPPs revolutionary leader said that his party was finding it hard to implement its manifesto because its allied parties were creating hurdles in the way of implementation of welfare projects meant for the poor. Speaking on the occasion, PPPs Punjab acting President, Sami Ullah Khan said that his party would continue to raise voice for marginalised sections of society. The PPP leader also used the occasion to criticise PML-N leadership, whom he accused of signing an NRO-like agreement with a dictator to flee the country with the promise of not returning back for 10 years. PPPs Additional General Secretary, Dr. Hasnaat Shah, PLBs Lahore chapter President Ehtashamul Haq and noted historian Mubarak Ali also addressed the seminar.
