The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on Tuesday demanded of the government to stop the devolution of Higher Education Commission (HEC) to provinces, saying that there was no such ‘constitutional compulsion’ in the 18th Amendment.
“Devolution of the HEC to provinces will affect the future of thousands of Ph. D scholars and researchers, who are presently studying and doing research work in the country and abroad,” PML-N Secretary Information Ahsan Iqbal said.
Addressing a news conference here at the party’s central secretariat here, he said that the matter would be taken up in the upcoming session of the National Assembly in consultation with other political parties.
He suggested forming a parliamentary committee to look into the matter of national importance and assured full cooperation of his party to resolve it.
