Talking to the protesting teachers Sehar said that education standard in Sindh is lowest among the four provinces. Is this demonstration is the practical example of Sindh government’s “Sindh is the front” twitter campaign, she asked.

Still later, the police officials have offered negotiations with the striking teachers whose five-member delegation was taken to the office of Deputy Commissioner South.
