LCWU students attend classes under tents
LAHORE, Oct 19: Due to delay in the construction of a new block the Lahore College for
Women University (LCWU) students are attending their classes in mosques and
under the tents on the university campus.
Construction of the new block
was started after First Lady Sehba Musharraf had inaugurated it in 2002. After
five years the construction has not been completed.
LCWU vice chancellor
(VC) Prof Dr Bushra Mateen said, "In 2002 in an agreement with a construction
company, Hasnain Contex, it was decided that the company will complete the
construction in 2006." She said the company had not completed the construction
so far. She said it was mentioned in the agreement that if the company would not
complete the construction till 2006, the LCWU could stop its payment. She said
the LCWU had planned to construct a postgraduate block for its 25 master's
departments. She said construction of libraries, laboratories, studios, halls
and an FM radio station was also in the plan.
Munir Hussain, the
construction company owner, said, "The main reason for the delay is that the
LCWU has not paid our Rs 9,000,000." He said the company had been negotiating
with LCWU administration, but they were not showing their willingness for the
timely completion of the project.
Aqsa Naz, a master's student, said,
"It is difficult for us to attend our classes under tents and in the mosques."
Maira Saleem, a student, said the university had started a number of new
programmes, but they did not have classrooms. Rudaba, another student, said
often two classes were held simultaneously in a single classroom.
Mass Communication Department chairperson Anjum Zia said, "We know that there is
a shortage of classrooms, but we still don't want to deprive thousands of
students from getting admissions." He said, "Around 3,000 students have been
enrolled to graduation classes, 1,000 to master's and 1,500 to intermediate, but
due to lack of classrooms students are suffering." Daily Times
