Quaid Week To Be Celebrated From Dec 19 To 25: Marriyum
KARACHI, Dec 3 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 03rd Dec, 2016 ) : Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Ms Marriyum Aurangzeb Saturday said the Federal government would celebrate Quaid-i-Azam Week from December 19 to 25 in connection with the upcoming birth anniversary of the Founder of the Nation.
She was talking to the media here after laying a wreath and offering Fateha at the mausoleum of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The minister said during the week, special programmes would be organized in academic institutions as well as other organizations to apprise the younger generation about different aspects of the Quaid's personality and achievements.
She said by following the Quaid's principles of 'faith, unity and discipline', "we can achieve national targets for the betterment of the country as well as its people." She said the present government would carry out census in the country and a strategy in that regard had already been chalked out by the federal government in the beginning of current year.
Marriyum Aurangzeb said that the National Action Plan (NAP) was for the entire country. Because of the NAP and the positive policies adopted by the present government, there had been a marked improvement in the law and order situation.
Replying to a question, she said Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had entered into practical politics and that was a good omen. The minister said instead of talking about the personality of Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, his performance should be discussed.
He had played a very important role in the war against terror, she added. She said the government had always consulted all the political parties on the NAP as well as the Karachi operation. The minister on the occasion recorded her impressions in the Visitors' Book paying rich tribute to the great Quaid.
