Won't it be a best step to give sense of participation to all the provinces in this activity? Won't it make federation more strong if academies are dispersed in all the provinces so that a sense of deprivation and dessentment can be removed from the other provinces?
Positive opinions will be more than welcome.
I seriously do not see any thing concrete in your statement.
As far as STP academies are concerned, here is a list which i think will clarify some of the situation.
STP's Held at Islamabad
1. Police Service of Pakistan
2. Foreign Services of Pakistan
3. Information Service
4. Commerce and Trade Group
5. Postal Group
6. Office Management Group
STP'S held at Lahore
1. District Management Group
2. Income Tax Group
3. Audit and Accounts Group
4. Pakistan Railways
STP held at Karachi
1. Pakistan customs and Excise Group
As you can all see that most of the STP's are held at Islamabad the federal capital of Pakistan and the one's held at lahore are there just because they were always there since long.
It is pertinent to mention that the Staff college is held simultaneously at Lahore, Peshawar and Karachi.
I can not see the reason that we have to bring provincialism in every discourse of our discussion.
I did not mean to hurt or belittle any one. These are my observations. All of you are welcomed to disagree.
