Admission in Lahore colleges: Student unions not allowed
Admission in colleges: Student unions not allowed to set up stalls
Lahore, Aug 07, 2008: Pending revival of students' union in educational institutions, no
single student group is in a position to enjoy influence in any college or
university in the admission matters on the pretext of 'guidance to the
students'. In the process of admission in colleges, which started with the
declaration of Matriculation result, the traditional groups of students are kept
at distance by the college administration. This mean that students mafia which
usually become active during admissions has been eradicated to some extent. This
was evident from the fact that a so called student group tried to influence sale
of admission forms to lure the admission seekers, was smashed by the
Administration of Islamia College Railway Road.. The group managed to sell the
forms at Rs. 100/- while it costs Rs. 35/- and that too through the Banks.
Consequently the Administration reported the matter to the Police. Cases were
registered against Shabbar Gujjar, Adnan Chaudhry and others who were arrested
by the Police. The accused were later released on bail but restrained from
entering the college premises.
Similarly, a group of students along with some
unscruplous persons tried to set up camps at volatile Government MAO College.
The college authorities did not allow them to do so and expelled them with the
help of Police. The MAO is sensitive place where a gruesome incident of firing
between the two rival groups of students occurred on April 28 last in an attempt
to get control of respective student society in the college. Following the
incident a Police contingent was posted and security tightened at the college.
However, ad the admissions started some of them became active but their attempt
These persons tried to take undue advantage of the instructions
issued by former MSF central President and PML (N) MPA Rana Arshad who directed
the MSF to install camps in the colleges for the guidance of the new comers in
admission matters. The directive produced counter productive as other groups
also became active all of whom have no legality pending decision on the revival
of students unions.
The concerned circle say that there was no need of
guidance from the student groups as college and universities departments have
sufficient staff to guide the students on admissions and to provide them
necessary information, forms and prospectus etc. Why to allow students groups to
operate and fleece the admission seekers under the garb of guidance.
Even the Punjab University has not allowed the students groups to establish
camps for the guidance of students. Both the University Students Federation
(USF) and IJT have been restrained not to vitiate atmosphere in the university
campus. The Chairman Hall Council Prof. Dr. Saeed Ahmad Nagra said there was no
entry test for admission and hence no need to guide the students by the
respective groups. Moreover, if there was any need, the respective teaching
department have to provide all information regarding admissions. The Nation
