Lahore: Lahore High Court (LHC) Chief Justice (CJ) Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Tuesday ordered the Punjab government not to take any disciplinary action against the teachers who took part in a protest against the formation of Board of Governors (BoGs) in colleges.

He said college fees would not be increased nor will the job structure of teachers would be changed. He said the teachers were using students for their vested interests.

On teachers and students reservation on a four-year bachelor's degree programme, Khatana submitted that the government had made this plan to upgrade the standard of bachelor's degree. He said it took four years to complete a bachelor's degree all over the world due to which Pakistani bachelor's degree holders faced many problems.

He stated that the security officials deputed at the assembly acted against teachers and students to ensure security on the premises, which could not be compromised in any case.

He submitted that the action by the officials against the protesters was defensive as the students had crossed the security limits.

The CJ had taken suo moto notice on media reports, which said that police resorted to heavy baton charge on protesters belonging to Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association's Joint Action Committee and the students of Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT). The demonstrators had managed to force their way to the main gate of the assembly after breaking into the security cordon. Daily times
