Punjab University reschedules summer vacations

LAHORE, June 2(Daily Times): The Punjab University (PU) on Friday rescheduled the summer vacations due to extreme hot weather, a press statement said. The teaching departments, institutes, centres and constituent colleges will remain closed from June 4 (Monday) instead of June 18 to July 30. The PU Academic Staff Association (PUASA) criticised the decision. The PUASA in its executive body meeting declared that the decision and notices given to the boarding students to vacate hostels would create problems for the students.

The meeting observed that the students were busy preparing for their exams and the decision would hamper their studies. PUASA president Dr Mumtaz Salik said there was no emergency in the university, therefore the administration should not have changed the summer vacations schedule. He said female boarding students were disturbed by the sudden decision. He said the PU administration was demanding extra charges from the students for their stay on the campus after June 4.
