Federal Minister shows concern over FBISE’s absence in Inter Board Sports Competitions

Islamabad, January 26, 2018 (PPI-OT):Federal Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) Mian Riaz Hussain Pirzada has requested Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training, Engr. Muhammad Baligh Ur Rehman to initiate an inquiry into the matter of FBISE’s staying out Inter Board Sports Competitions at Sports Complex, Islamabad. In a letter to Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training, Federal Minister for IPC Riaz Hussain Pirzada said Pakistan Sports Board organizes Inter Board Sports Competitions every year, wherein, almost all the Boards of Technical and Intermediate Secondary Education participate in different sports disciplines.

The event posses high significance and provides best opportunities to our youth to show muscles and demonstrate their skills in different games. It is not only a sports event but an expression and demonstration of solidarity by the youth participating across the country. Surprisingly this time Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) is not participating in the current event due to the reasons unknown, Federal Minister Riaz Pirzada said.

He said it is a matter of serious concern that the FBISE has chosen to stay out of these games which is counterproductive because so many talented players have been deprived of showing their potential. The irresponsible act of FBISE warrants an inquiry. It is therefore requested that an inquiry may be initiated in to the matter which has done a lot of harm to the cause of sports, said the Federal Minster for IPC.
