Punjab govt scheme: Free UPS follow free laptops
Rawalpindi: After laptops, Punjab government is all set to distribute uninterrupted power supply (UPS) devices to students aimed at lightening up their study tables, during the prolonged loadshedding in summer.
Unlike laptops, for which students were required to obtain outstanding positions (Above 90 per cent marks), the UPS scheme will be accessible to students with marks higher than 55 per cent.
DCO Rawalpindi Saqib Zafar confirmed that initial formalities for the distribution of the UPS devices had been completed, including data gathering of students that had achieved more than 55 per cent marks in Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Part-I and II.
"The project has a wider scope than the laptop scheme as it involves more students. In our first phase, we are all set to distribute 1, 80,000 UPS machines among the qualified students," said the DCO.
MPAs, MNAs and Senators will distribute UPS among students in their respective constituencies, to what political observers said was an attempt to woo people to vote for PML-N in the upcoming elections.
"The UPS devices will not only be used by students but also by their family members and it means pre-poll rigging. The sasti roti (cheap bread) scheme, laptop distribution, Ashiana housing projects and now the UPS drama, all are populist measures," city president PPP Amir Fida Paracha said, criticising the scheme.
Mr Paracha said that billions were being wasted on populist schemes, urging the Supreme Court (SC) to take notice of the wastage of public money.
However, PML-N lawmaker Hanif Abbasi said that loadshedding had already crippled the industrial sector in the country, wishing that at least students should not fall prey to it.
"We will distribute UPS machines among students so that their careers are not ruined by the irritating power cuts. We are proud of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for his vision to provide UPS to students," Mr Abbasi said.
The UPS machines purchased by Punjab government in this regard have a backup charge of two hours that could be enhanced by attaching extra batteries.
The first distribution ceremony would take place in the start of February in Rawalpindi. Dawn
