Punjab Inter students on streets again
Students again take to streets
Chakwal, Jan 06: Having left
high and dry by the Punjab government, the students of intermediate
classes here on Thursday took to the streets and urged Chief Justice of
Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry to take suo motu notice and save
their academic future.
The students complained that the
Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education did not give them marks of
objective papers which had severely affected their career. The board in
its revised results cancelled the objective papers and decided that the
marks obtained by students in the objective papers in Part II would be
considered as the marks for the Part 1 papers. However, the students
termed this policy 'highly ridiculous and cruel'.
students from the Government Postgraduate College, Govt College for
Women and District Public School reached Bhoun Chowk and blocked the
road. They chanted slogans against the government, BISE and elected
representatives. "Many of us had scored good marks in the objective
papers of Part 1. What will happen if we do not get good marks in Part
II," a student said. The students were of the view that the new
policy would also become a hurdle in their admission to universities.
They said due to cancellation of Part 1 objective papers, they could not
get high marks necessary for taking admission to reputed universities.
They also accused the administration of their colleges for not taking the issue seriously. Dawn
