  • I really would like to know what they have been taught … maybe they have been taught how to use MS-Word or mayble MS-Paint :)
    PTA now controls 100% of the Internet traffic of the country , passing it through a single system … not to mention its not even manned 24 hrs a day or on Holidays. Dr.Yaseen can give away all the gifts and diplomas he wants …but PTA is a very long way from getting its act together !! Whats actually missing is common sense … which is pretty uncommon in PTA.
