Former CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif said that no society can truly progress without fully integrating the special persons into the system.
He made the comments while visiting school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and with special needs on Friday. Shahbaz added that the Sharif family never used charity projects for political mileage as the family firmly believed that it was unfair to do so and it hurt the charity work. Shahbaz said that when he took over, the budget for Special Education was extremely low but in the last five years, the PML-N government not only improved the budget but hired more teachers for special education and ensured proper transportation service for the special children so they could attend school.
Meanwhile, Ijazul Haq, chief of his own party PML-Zia, Friday called on Shahbaz Sharif at Raiwind and discussed with him political situation.
