Azeemabad is a village at a distance of 15 km from Bahawalpur City. The village consists of more than 200 houses, and there is not a single government school. Muhammad Akram is a councillor from this village. He has invited Federal Minister of Education Mian Baligh ur Rehman 3-4 times during 2013-2018.
Muhammad Akram says most of the school-age children in the village have never attended a school. We also have asked the minister to a sanction a school building. “There is only one private school in the village but families can’t pay Rs 150 per child/month. We request the government to immediately provide our village with a school.”
