PU removes IJT's admission stalls
Lahore: The Punjab University (PU) administration closed down 'admission stalls'
set up by the Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) and the University Students' Federation
(USF) and removed their banners after a quarrel between IJT members and Hall
Council Chairman Dr Saeed Ahmed Nagra.
The university had barred student
unions from setting up stalls or displaying banners during the admission
process. PU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran had directed all departments
to set up their own guidance stalls. The PU administration had also formed a
committee to stop student unions from setting up their stalls.
insisted that its stalls were legal because the ban on student unions had been
lifted, and alleged that its workers had been beaten up. Wasif Khan, a student,
said that IJT members argued with Dr Nagra when he tried to stop the
union from setting up stalls.
Just helping: PU IJT Nazim Rana Zahid said
in a press conference on Wednesday that his union had been setting up stalls to
"help students from far-flung areas" for years, and that it was not illegal. "It
is not appropriate for a teacher to quarrel with students," he said about the
argument between IJT members and Dr Nagra.
Not required: PU Public
Relations Officer Shabbir Sarwar said that the university had publicised the
admission process in newspapers and the IJT's illegal stalls were not required.
"The IJT members who have set up the stalls are not even university students,"
he said, adding that stern action would be taken against them. He said the
administration had announced it would not let any student group set up
Ahmed, a student, said that student unions
distributed leaflets at the admission stalls and recruited new members. But
another student, Muhammad Nafees, said the admission stalls were necessary
because the admission procedure was complicated and the university clerks "will
probably demand money". Daily Times
