K-P Minister for secondary and elementary education Atif Khan had objected in the last meeting but he is agreed with the articles of the council now “the term with which the K-P minister was disagreed is that ‘the tone and tenor of the provision stating that provinces would be bound to follow the recommendations of the body, including the text book printing, etc.
“But now all the terms which were becoming the problem have been removed now we will make decision with 100 per cent vote of all the provinces,” he also told this
