PU VC spoiling cricket series: IJT
LAHORE, May 28(Daily Times): Muhammad Ayub, Punjab University's (PU) Islami Jamiat
Talaba nazim, alleged on Sunday that university vice chancellor Arshad Mehmood
was hindering students from taking part in healthy activity.
He told the
teams that made it to the quarterfinals of the PU Challenge Cup 2007 – a cricket
tournament organised by IJT on the New Campus – that by organising and promoting
healthy activity the IJT had proved that it worked for the betterment of the
students. He said the IJT would continue organising events on campus and that
nobody could stop it from doing so.
Lahore Jamaat-e-Islami president
Hafiz Salman Butt said 'dictators' had always found students to be the main
hurdle in their rule and therefore they banned student unions. He said the ban
was 'undemocratic and unconstitutional'.
Kashif Malik, PU's IJT
information secretary said that 110 cricket matches had been played
so far. He said more than 100 teams were from the various university
departments. He said each team had to pay Rs 200 to enter the tournament and
that Rs 50,000 had been kept as the first prize and Rs 25,000 as second. The
cricket tournament organised by the IJT started on New Campus on Thursday.
