The provincial minister vowed that the provincial government will no grant any “exemptions” or let any institution “challenge the writ of the government”.
The letter shared by the minister was a response sent by the Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board to an inquiry by the college regarding textbooks being used in the institution.
The board informed the college of the books that have been granted a no-objection certificate (NOC) and “advised” the college to not prescribe books that have not been approved.
