Promote Lassi and Sattu, not tea; HEC advises Pakistani universities

June 24, 2022 0

What happened: The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan has tabled the recommendations they want to be implemented in different universities in Pakistan. It is pertinent to mention that this development comes at a time when the Shehbaz-led govt has imposed a ban on the import of luxury items to decrease the national import bill. At the same time, HEC is doing its bid to help decrease the import bill. 

Details: ProPakistani quoted a letter written by ED of HEC, Dr. Shaista Sohail, that read, “the HEC has proposed to increase the consumption of locally manufactured traditional drinks such Lassi and Sattu.” Subsequently, ProPakistani has further quoted the letter, “it will create employment opportunities and generate income for the people involved in this business.”
