Urdu University substandard cafeteria

Islamabad, Marach 01, 2008: Students of Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST), Islamabad Campus, have complained that FUUAST cafeteria contractor was charging very high and providing substandard food items due to inaction of the university administration.

Students said despite several complaints the administration was reluctant to take any action against the contractor. The students said they were helpless as no official of the university was ready to redress their complaints.

They said a number of times they had approached the administration and tried to draw their attention towards it but every time the administration made lame excuses and took no action to improve the situation.

The students said dirty tables and crockery and flies were a regular feature of the cafeteria but the contractor was satisfied with his services and unwilling to improve the standard.

Many of our fellows are suffering from stomach related diseases due to substandard and unhygienic food items, said students.

They said a cup of tea was available at the cafeteria at Rs 6, samosa at Rs 5, chicken biryani plate at Rs 50 and egg burger at Rs 25.

The students said only a few food items were available at cafeteria and the students had to visit the nearby hotels.

The cafeteria also lacks furniture, as there are only two-dozen chairs, most of them damaged, for about 2,500 students, they complained. If only one-fifth of total students visit the cafeteria the situation becomes pathetic, they added.

Moreover, two rooms specified for cafeteria are not enough to accommodate more than 30 students, said the students, adding, whenever we visit the cafeteria we have to keep standing for a chair for long. The students said they were being exploited since long but the relevant quarters were least bothered to resolve their problem.

Inquiry committee: FUUAST Administration Officer Iqbal Joya said that an inquiry committee against the cafeteria contractor would soon be constituted to redress the complaint of students about substandard food and high prices.

"The inquiry committee would look into the matter and forward its report to vice chancellor (VC) for an appropriate action," he added. Daily Times
