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.
