BUITMS students' hunger strike ends
Quetta: The eleven-day long 'unto
death' hunger strike by Balochistan University of Information Technology and
Management Sciences (BUITMS) students seeking a new admission policy based on
open merit at district level finally ended on Monday.
Around four hundred
Baloch students had been on a strike at BUITMS for more than a week to press the
government to review the current admission policy at BUITMS by replacing the 70
percent open merit with a district-based merit.
Committee: The strike
was called off following a meeting between the students and Balochistan Assembly
(BA) Speaker Aslam Bhootani and Provincial Minister for Irrigation Sardar Aslam
Bezinjo. On their visit to the hunger strike camp in front of the Quetta Press
Club, they informed the students that the governor had formed a twelve-member
committee to solve the issue within a week.
Bezinjo told reporters that
the governor had ordered the BUITMS management not to take any admissions until
the committee reached a decision.
The Baloch students have been
complaining that due to the 70 percent open merit admission policy, a large
number of Baloch students from rural areas fail to obtain admission at BUITMS.
"All we want is that BUITMS should conduct tests in every district to
select meritorious students so that every district is represented at this
prestigious institute," said Qambar Baloch, the strike organiser. The students
said on Monday that they fully trusted the committee and expected "justice" from
