Accordingly, the ministry issued an appeal to all educated citizens to fulfill their patriotic duty by teaching their fellow citizen who was deprived of the privilege of knowledge. The government allocated the necessary funds needed for the campaign, such as lectures, books and stationery, and organized a press campaign in newspapers, magazines, and television.
