Sindh Teachers' demands
Karachi, May 02, 2008: The Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) has demanded re-nationalisation of the St. Joseph and St. Patrick's colleges and lifting of a ban on teachers' associations.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, the SPLA recalled that Syed Qaim Ali Shah had assured the teachers' community while the PPP was in the opposition that his party would meet both the demands after coming to power.

The statement, signed by Prof Syed Riaz Ahsan, Prof Manzoor Chishti, Prof Liaquat Solangi, Prof Ayub Marri, Prof Yaqoob Chandio and Prof Athar Hussain, appreciated the government's decision of relieving retired teachers hired on a contract basis, and hoped that the government would also reverse the decisions under which educational institutions were privatised, changes were made in the academic calendar and transfers were made on political grounds.
