unauthorised event at New Campus, the Punjab University (PU) administration on

arrange a Mehfil-e-Mushaira at the STC New Campus on Thursday evening but the PU

of electricity supply to the venue.

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

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

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.

this healthy and academic activity.

have force to physically resist the student organisation owing to which it was

the press conference because the PTI student-wing had not sought any
