Urdu University to get land for campus

ISLAMABAD, May 3(Daily Times): Federal Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said the Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology will be provided with the land it needs to build its campus to enhance the university's capacity to promote education.

Addressing as chief guest at a prize distribution ceremony on Wednesday at the conclusion of a weeklong sports festival in the varsity, he asked the university management to prepare a comprehensive summary and present it before the government's land distribution committee, and said the committee would discuss the matter in its next meeting.

"I realise the university has been set up in a rented building and needs to have its own campus," said Ahmed, adding that the varsity would be provided with suitable land to accommodate its campus, playgrounds and other necessary facilities to ensure the provision of quality education and co-curricular activities. Later, the federal minister distributed prizes and certificates among winners of various competitions, including qirat and naat competitions, cricket and badminton championships and drama contests.
