Vice Chancellor Dr Naeem Farooqui said the university had a credit of being the first private sector university for women where students were provided contemporary education.
Chief Guest Dr Farooq Sattar said that in the present-day hustle and bustle, it was a good omen for the nation that female students were becoming successful in the field of education.
He assured the students that five per cent of the next budget would be allocated for education. He said that the fact that call rates were cheaper than bread was a clear sign that all was not well in the country.
