QUETTA: The Balochistan government declared a public holiday for educational institutes across the province to mark the birth anniversary of the Poet of East Allama Muhammad Iqbal falling on Wednesday.

“There will be public holiday in Balochistan on the occasion of Iqbal Day in schools and colleges,” a spokesman for the Balochistan government told PNP.

The spokesman, however, said that all offices would remain open.

Balochistan is the third province after Sindh and KPK to declare holiday in schools and colleges.

A notification circulated in this regard on social media was found to be forged.
