    The newly-elected Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government in Sindh has announced to make Ajrak as part of the uniform for girls in all secondary and higher secondary government schools.

    According to a recently issued notification, the use of Ajrak will be made part of the school uniform for the girl students from class IX to XII.

    To ensure the directives and implement the policy, the government has nominated Sadaf Akbar Memon as its focal person. She will be responsible to “visit schools under the administrative control of this directorate randomly.”

    The focal person will be responsible to look after the progress of implementation of the uniform policy and submit report on monthly basis.

    Ajrak is a unique form of blockprinted shawls and tiles found in Sindh, Pakistan. These shawls display special designs and patterns made using block printing by stamps.

    In 2012, it was reported that instead of the conventional dupattas or scarves, the girl students in the schools and colleges of the province may soon be wearing ajraks – a trademark of the Indus Valley Civilisation – as districts governments have decided to make the traditional chaddar a part of uniform.

    And what a start to PPP's government!

    PPP issue probably the most useless "reform" possible. Not only is this useless, will the government supply these ajraks? No, the poor people are going to have to buy ajraks themselves!

    So many problems in Sindh, yet PPP give priority to make schoolgirls wear ajraks.

    Zinda hai, zinda hai, zinda hai!

    I wonder if someone within the ruling party has come across a supply of cheap ajrak and has found a way of flogging it off and earning themselves a pretty penny

    That is probably the case, these PPP and PML-N people only think about amassing their own personal wealth.

    And because of that I can't see Imran Khan losing another election in his lifetime, which despite me being a huge fan of both him and PTI, is not good. We need a strong opposition aside from PTI twitterati

    I just hope PTI wins a stronger mandate next time, and is able to implement some solid election reforms. It may help the rise of smaller players like AWP, Jibran Nasir, etc.

    You forget this is used to pay government employees, you know people doing the work.

    Though in Sindh's case, it probably goes into corruption

    It's a great tragedy that we the people of Karachi have to suffer with PPP because the mindless slaves from interior Sindh can't stop worshipping Bhutto.


    Stupid PPP isn't even going to implement an effective local government system.

    I honestly don't see PPP winning Sindh in 2023 unless PTI totally fail to deliver.

    There were many NA seats where PTI gained 10,000+ votes, despite PTI telling people to vote for GDA. There were also many PS seats where PTI narrowly lost out. Then also look at areas like Dadu, Tharparkar, Sukkur and Hyderabad, where PTI managed to get tens of thousands of votes, and narrowly missed out on a couple of seats.

    Now with PTI Sindh's new initiative of monitoring an interior district each, and a change of leadership in Karachi and Sindh, things will start changing a lot faster. In 2023, I am marginally expecting a PTI led government in Sindh, with GDA and MQM as coalition partners.

    As long as status quo continues in Sindh, I hardly have any hopes. At best we may seem some improvement in Karachi if PTI gets to implement its manifesto in karachi without PPP interference which is very unlikely, PPP will try to make it as difficult as it could for PTI in karachi. I just hope Imran Khan and his karachi team will be up for it.

    We definitely need more child care unit in Sindh and I hope that it’s a step in the right direction.
