Governor Sindh Muhammad Kamran Tessori has said that we are no more a nation but we are divided into many nationalities. “The world is going to the moon and we are still begging for electricity, water and gas, while it is our right to be provided with these facilities,” he said while addressing the 2nd Graduation Ceremony of Aligarh Institute of Technology (AIT).

He said that even after 75 years, we are at the same place where we were 75 years ago. Pakistan is rich in natural resources and we are fortunate that 60% of our total population is youth. Everyone is asking for a job while there is not much job opportunities in the market. We need to go for entrepreneurship, why don’t you become an employer rather than employee.

Tessori said that parents want their child to become doctor, engineer or a top executive. However, no one wants his child to become a good person. That is why even after 75 years we failed to find a good person to run the country. There is a lot of talent in the country but there is a dearth of good people in the society. There are many mafias in the country. Since no one raises voice against those mafias, they are dominating us. I have started a war against them; Allah will help me with your prayers to win this battle.

On this memorable occasion around more than 700 diplomas were given to the pass-outs of DAE Program in 7 different technologies. Position holders were awarded with gold, silver and bronze medals for securing highest marks in the respective technologies.

AIT students of Software Technology secured first, second and third poison in the whole province of Sindh in Sindh Board of Technical Education (SBTE) Exams 2022, while students of Biomedical Technology got first and second position in SBT exams 2022. On this auspicious occasion, on behalf of the Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET), Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Vali Uddin announced to grant full tuition scholarship to the 5 position holders of AIT.

Addressing the ceremony, Chancellor SSUET and Chairman AIT Governing Body, Jawaid Anwar said that the technology is playing a dominant role in development and growth of the country. Technology has become a game changer in the present era. The concept of technology has changed. The importance of diploma holders has increased globally. Skilled people are in high demand in China, Japan, and Germany. Now the youth have to work on new and unique ideas using speed mind execution.

This is the era of knowledge-based economy. Students can design their own business through their concepts and ideas. The budget of Uber, Careem, or Food Panda is more than the total budget of Pakistan, while they do not have their own vehicles, buildings and capital. They are just cashing on the ideas. Remember your idea is very valuable. Create and find opportunities yourself. Countries deprived of natural resources like Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Finland have joined the list of developed countries by gaining access to technology.

Presenting vote of thanks, Convener AIT, Engr Muhammad Arshad Khan said that 3 crores of children in the country are deprived of primary education, while two crores of children are deprived of secondary education. Our education system is producing servants, discouraging entrepreneurship. People are afraid to take any kind of risk that keeps them away from the business. AIT promises to produce best technicians of its own. The institute introduces new courses of technology to keep pace with the fast changing technologies.

Syed Muhammad Haider Abbas of the Biomedical Technology department, Hamza Irfan Patel of the Civil Technology, Duaa of the Computer Information Technology, Muhammad Abdul Qadir Shaikh of the Electrical Technology, Mirza Hammad Baig of the Electronic Technology, Muhammad Bilal Akhtar of the Mechanical Technology and Muniba Rizwan Qadri of the Software Technology received gold medals for securing highest marks in SBTE exams.
