Loadshedding mars teaching, lab works at KU

Karachi, April 25(The News): The ongoing frequent power outage and fluctuation in city is also marring the educational and research activities at the University of Karachi which is running about 40 departments with over 7,000 students.

The Dean Faculty of Science, Dr Viqaruddin Ahmad said on Saturday that the loadshedding and three to four-hour interruptions in power supply badly affected teaching in the Campus, particularly in the science subjects making in difficult for teachers and students to complete their courses of study and practical training, he added.

Dr Viqar mentioned that in past KESC did not apply loadshedding in the case of the university. He said it was becoming difficult to keep laboratories in order as some species and tissue cultures as well as certain chemicals were also on stake due to inactivity of airconditioning system.

The Dean urged the management of KESC to exempt the university from any load-shedding in better interest of students and higher education.

Another teacher said that due to outage of power some of the practical examinations were affected. He added that officially the KESC maintained that there was not loadshedding but the University, like other parts of the city, suffered due to the unannounced loadsheddding. Heads of some other institutions including universities and colleges have complained about the intermittent supply of power in their respective institutions.
