Rasheed on the occasion said that while politicians seek votes for Sadak, Paani and Bijli, they forget that “education is something for which no nation can wait”. “Therefore, I have decided to give priority to education and do whatsoever possible to bring revolutionary results in the education sector in my constituency,” he told the gathering.

Rasheed added, “whenever I need to go to people to seek votes I wish people should vote me for my performance and contribution in education sector.” “I find myself duty bound to request my people to use their full energies and resources in the field of education and don’t politicise the education, so that we can compete in the all times.”
