It is indeed a moment of pride for Government College University Lahore as an Institution that Hamza Shehbaz Sharif is the 11th Old Ravian to serve as the Chief Minister of Punjab, said GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Syed Asghar Zaidi on Saturday while passing on the good wishes to the CM Hamza on his election.
The first chief minister of the province, Nawab Iftikhar Hussain Khan Mamdot, 1947-1949, was also an alumnus of Government College Lahore, while other eminent chief ministers Mian Mumtaz Daultana, Malik Feroze Khan Noon, Malik Khuda Bakhsh Bucha, Muhammad Hanif Ramay, Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Dost Muhammad Khosa, Mr. Najam Sethi, Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif and Professor Hassan Askari Rizvi were also Old Ravians.
The Vice-Chancellor said they had high hopes from the young Chief Minister for the much-needed reforms and development of the education sector in the province. He also said they are looking forward to hosting the new chief minister at his alma mater soon.
Prof. Zaidi said that political affiliations do not matter for educational institutions like Government College University but it has always been a moment of great pride for us when our past students are appointed to prestigious positions in Pakistan and abroad. He said alumni’s achievements bring great laurels to their alma mater.
