PU shops closed by IJT reopen after two days

LAHORE, Aug 2: Two of the busiest shops in the Punjab University's Student-Teacher Shopping Centre reopened on Wednesday after they were shut down forcibly by the Islami Jamiat Talaba's (IJT) Food and Price Control Committee two days ago.

The IJT had shut the shops down on Monday accusing them of overcharging. The IJT allowed them to reopen on Wednesday.

The IJT has made its Food and Price Control Committee, which according to PU IJT nazim Mohammad Ayub, hears complaints against shopkeepers accused of overcharging and if they find the shopkeepers guilty, they close the shops. On Monday, IJT activists had forced the two shops to shut down and put up posters outside the shops announcing that the shops had been closed on orders of the Price and Food Committee of the PU IJT.

The shopkeepers of Tahir General Store and Sheikh Brothers Departmental Store said on Tuesday that they were worried and were not confident if they should complain against the IJT for forcing them to close their shops. They said they were not guilty of overcharging and alleged that the IJT had only closed their shops because the IJT wanted to hand over the shops to its favourites.

Another shopkeeper in the PU Student Teacher Commercial Centre said that no shopkeeper in the market was happy with the IJT and its illegal committee, but they could not do anything because the IJT was influential and PU authorities seldom took action against it. Daily times
