The Chairman Senate was accompanied by Senator Fida Muhammad Khan.

Addressing the participants, he said that Pakistan is blessed to have a very high percentage of young population which is full of energy and potential.  

“In order to channel this energy in the right direction, we must invest heavily in quality education, and particularly higher education, as it is the vehicle of change and national progress” Sanjrani observed.

He remarked that national quest towards ensuring and improving higher education cannot be achieved without the support from the state, empowerment of the youth cannot take place.

Chairman Senate said that Senate in the recent years has played a huge role in encouraging and engaging the youth through various initiatives and has signed MoUs with numerous universities to grant internship opportunities to university students besides other outreach initiatives, such as Public Petitions and visits to the Parliament House, the House of Federation has taken up the task to bring our youth closer to our parliament than ever before.
