Ludhiana October:

Like in the field of agriculture where Punjab is number one, all attempts are being made to make the state a leader in providing quality education, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said.

“Punjab is already number one in terms of the recruitment in defence services and in the food production too, so the state government is committed to make it number one in education also,” he said. The sole objective of the government was to impart quality education to the students especially girls in far flung areas, Badal said at a function organised to distribute free bicycles to girl students.

“When the SAD-BJP alliance assumed office, Punjab held the 14th position in education. Now it is at the third position due to our path breaking initiatives in the field of school, college and university education,” he said.
