Lahore, May 15: Teachers from various government colleges again took out a rally and held a hunger strike at the Charing Cross on Thursday to protest against the government for not fulfilling their demands - promotions and an increase in salaries.

The protest was organised by the Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association (PPLA). The teachers announced they would hold a protest comprising of lectures and professors from all government colleges of Punjab on May 21 from MAO College if their demands were not met by then.

The teachers gathered at the Dayal Singh College in the morning, where they held a convention. They marched towards the Punjab Assembly and staged a token hunger strike at the Charing Cross. The traffic remained jammed on adjacent roads for several hours.

The teachers carried placards asking the government to meet their demands and shouted slogans against it. The protesters said they were being discriminated against as the salaries of police and doctors had been increased. The protesting teachers expressed their anger over the delay in promotions, low salary structure and contractual appointments. "It is extremely regrettable that officers are sitting in their air-conditioned rooms while the teachers who taught them are forced to stage protests to voice their demands and rights," said a contract lecturer.

IJT organizes fund raising camp
Lahore: Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) has organized relief and fund raising camp for the people of Swat, Dir and Buner in Punjab University. Today first relief camp is organized in Hailey College of Finance in which a large number of male and female students donated funds. Tomorrow, relief camps will be organized in every department. Nazim Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) at the occasion said that the present disastrous situation of the country is due to the involvement of American intelligence agencies and the failed policies of Pakistani government are providing success to the negative motives of America, Israel and India.

He said that Pakistan army is one of the best army of the world and the tribal area's people always played their important positive role in defence of the country and always stood with Pakistan army. The foreign offices of India and America in Afghanistan are playing their negative role for the terrorist activities in Pakistan. Now they want to create similar situation as they created in 1971 in east Pakistan by generating the feelings of hate among army and the people of NWFP and Baloochistan.

He said that till now more than 12-lakh people have migrated from their residences in both the provinces. The government of Pakistan has not taken sufficient measures for the rehabilitation of these people, now it is the responsibility of students to play their positive role in order to help their brothers because whenever Pakistan faced any such situation the students played their vital role to bring country out of the turmoil. He also demanded from the government to review it's internal and foreign policy and clearly nominate it's real enemies and friends in order to bring country out of these security problems. Ppi
