PESHAWAR, September 1: Tenth anniversary of the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Women University was celebrated in the provincial capital Peshawar.

Teachers and students participated in a ceremony at the main university campus in Larama area in this respect.

The chief guest was the Secretary Higher Education, Ms Farah Hamid. Ms Hamid told the participants that the main reason behind establishment of the Benazir Women University was to educate womenfolk and to give them their rights.

She added that the government would provide all kind of support to the university for its progress and development.

A student participant told TNN, “It is the best university for the students and its teachers are very nice. I advise students to get admissions here. We request the government to work for its development as the campus is not spacious. Moreover, it’s a rural area and condition of roads is pitiable. The roads must be renovated to facilitate students and local residents alike.”
