Committee, staged a protest demonstration on Monday against the forced sacking

ongoing midterm examinations and staged a sit-in at M.A Jinnah Road. They
chanted slogans against the federal education minister and for the reinstatement
of the principal. They also set fire to the suspension
Talba Action Committee leaders rejected the suspension of
the college principal and termed it illegal. They asserted that DCET was a
federal institution and only the President of Pakistan had the power to suspend
the principal, while the notification was issued by the federal education
department. They also rejected the proposed appointment of grade-18 engineer as
the principal and said that the decision was taken by neglecting many senior
teachers of the college, adding the federal minister wanted to appoint a
principal on the basis of favouritism. They demanded the immediate withdrawal of
the suspension notification of DCET Principal.
