Mehmood added that the television school was launched because of the Covid-19 explosion on April 7.
Students are facing difficulties due to the weak internet connection.
Now the internet is being rolled out across the country, he said.
In addition, the Minister of Education and Culture added that a skills development program had been launched to provide skills to around 170,000 children.
He added that the Ehsaas program will get scholarships for 50,000 students and 1,000 nurses.
