It has become inevitable to turn literacy into a national movement. Pakistan's performance in many fields has been outstanding since independence, but the number of illiterates in the country is alarmingly high, he said, adding that illiteracy is also a reason behind problems like poverty, unemployment, intolerance, and unrest.
He continued: "In every term, the PPP gave top priority to education. Most schools and colleges were established during the regime of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (Shaheed). Benazir Bhutto (Shaheed) increased the education budget and established higher education institutions."
Bilawal Bhutto renewed the PPP's resolve to continue its struggle to provide free education across the country as without raising the literacy rate to 100%, the dreams of the founding fathers of the nation can't come true.
