Opposition towards illegal sale of Private Education Institution plots

Illegal sale of Edu'n Institution plots
The heads and owners of private schools are opposing the sale of plots allotted for private educational institutions. They have demanded the government for immediate cancellation of the sale, and in case the government fails to do so, then the issue will further be moved to the court.


On addressing a news conference at the Peshawar Press Club on Monday, the National Education council (NEC) Deputy Chairman, Nazar Hussain said that Peshawar Development Authority had given an advertisement to sell the plots of private educational institutions.

He also said, this decision was purely against the violation of Provincial Assembly Act 1992.

He further explained that Peshawar High Court had issued an order regarding the sale of commercial plots, but has not made any decision to sell the plots meant for private educational institutions. Moreover, the PHC had also given a verdict against the disposal of properties of private education institutions through proper draw and auctioning in the year 2012, he added.

Further, he urged the government to stop the Peshawar Development Authority from this illegal act, as the authority already accepted the policy of allotment of plots to private education institutions under the Provincial Assembly Act 1992.

He further termed that the committee constituted by former provincial government was totally unconstitutional and undemocratic, as no representation was given to relevant stakeholders in it; therefore, there was no legal status of this committee.

He also demanded the PTI Chairman Imran Khan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister, Pervez Khattak and provincial minister for local government to cancel this illegal sale of plots allotted to private education institutions as per Provincial Assembly Act 1992.
