Bugti emphasized the appointment of district education officers based on merit, assuring that political interference in the department would be eradicated. However, he cautioned that any teacher found absent despite these measures would face action, even leading to repercussions for the education secretary.

Highlighting the government’s substantial investment in education, Bugti noted that each child’s education in the province costs Rs72,000. He pointed out that with such funding, a child could afford to attend an elite private school, underscoring the significance of utilizing resources effectively for educational advancement.
