Quetta: Journalism classes in colleges remain pending in Balochistan since 1993, even after 20 years government has failed to initiate journalism classes at college level. However, journalism classes were notified in 1993 and to date there is no development in this regard at college level. Hundreds of journalism degree holders in Balochistan are jobless due to ignorance of government.
Moreover, PRO vacancies are also filled with no degree of journalism and irrelevant officers are appointed by several departments. Government needs to start journalism classes at degree level and to create PRO vacancies in each department in order to employ the jobless degree holder.
