Peshawar: The Federation of All Pakistan University Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) has threatened to close down all public sector universities across the country if its demands were not met soon.

Addressing a news conference here on Thursday, central president of FAPUASA, Dr Arbab Khan Afridi demanded of the government to immediately reinstate the teachers of Balochistan University.

"The terminated teachers have been on a hunger strike for the past 48 hours. If anything happens to them, we will not only close down the universities but also take to the streets. Peshawar University will be the first to be shut," Arbab, who is also president of Peshawar University Teachers Association (PUTA), threatened.
