Power cut off at PU to foil student functions
Lahore: In order to prevent Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) from organising an unauthorised event at New Campus, the Punjab University (PU) administration on Thursday had to suspend power supply to the varsity's Student Teacher Centre (STC), It was learnt.

According to sources Jamiat had announced to arrange a Mehfil-e-Mushaira at the STC New Campus on Thursday evening but the PU administration did not grant permission. However when the student group did not pay heed to the instructions the varsity administration resorted to suspension of electricity supply to the venue.

It is learnt that later Jamiat activists themselves arranged generators to avoid any disruption in conduct of the ceremony.

Sources in the PU administration said that the administration could not physically stop the student group from arranging the event therefore it suspended the power supply to the venue of the event. They further said that the varsity officials also contacted the local police but it refused to help the varsity administration.

"A large number of outsiders and expelled students had gathered on the occasion owing to which the administration hesitated to resist physically", they added.

PU chapter IJT Nazim Zahid Naveed said that permission was sought and granted by the administration about the event adding it was unfortunate that instead of facilitating students the administration suspended the electricity.

"Hundreds of students were attending the ceremony while guests included renowned poets were also present", he said adding "The move was certainly embarrassing". He said student unions had been restored but the varsity administration was not willing to accept the decision of the Prime Minister by adopting such tactics.

Zahid further said following varsity administration's move Jamiat arranged generators to ensure smooth conduct of this healthy and academic activity.

Meanwhile the PU administration on Thursday also barred the Insaaf Students Federation (ISF) from holding a press conference at the varsity's New Campus. The ISF was scheduled to hold a press conference at the PU Institute of Communication Studies (ICS) while invitations to media had also been dispatched.

However the student wing of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) was not allowed to hold the press conference on the pretext it had not sought any permission from the varsity administration.

PU chapter ISF convener Kamran Akram Khan said the varsity administration requested the ISF not to hold press conference therefore the programme was cancelled.

He however expressed his dissatisfaction over the move and said other student organisations like Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) had not been barred from holding its events in the university in the past.

When contacted PU official spokesperson Dr Mujahid Ali Mansoori said no student organisation was allowed to organise any event on the campus without approval of the administration. 'As per the varsity Syndicate decision any unauthorised activity by any student organisation is illegal', he added.

He said the police did not cooperate while the varsity did not have force to physically resist the student organisation owing to which it was decided that power supply to the venue should be suspended.

Dr Mujahid Mansoori, who is also the Students Advisor, said the ISF was not allowed to hold the press conference because the PTI student-wing had not sought any permission.
