Punjab universities vice chancellors meeting

Vice chancellors meeting decided to open universities soon
Lahore, Oct 24: Governor Salman Taseer chaired a meeting of vice-chancellors of all public universities of Punjab to review security issues of institutions.

Speaking on the occasion, the governor said bold decisions were needed for better and secure future of the youth. He said a few extremists could not terrify the nation.

He said closure of universities was not a solution as it would demoralise students. He said the war on terrorism was a long war but the problem would be dealt with the support of the nation.

Taseer said that teachers should create awareness among students about the evil designs of terrorists who were trying to destabilize the country. He said motivation would boost confidence of students.

Vice-chancellors briefed the meeting on security measures at their respective institutions. The meeting unanimously decided to open universities very soon.

The governor directed VCs to enhance their present security system immediately. All universities would have independent security department headed by a chief security officer.

The chief security officers and security guards should preferably be ex-servicemen. Recruitments of security staff should be made as early as possible.

It was decided that security staff should be well-equipped and well-trained to face any critical situation. Walkthrough gates should be installed at entrances of universities.

All students, teachers and other staff members would display their identity cards and no one would be allowed to enter the university without cards. Parking lots should be away from the main building of universities.

The governor assured VCs that the government will provide all possible assistance to enhance the security of universities.

He said the Punjab government would establish a command and control cell to ensure foolproof security for universities.

Chief security officers and cell in charge would devise effective security policy through close liaison and share intelligence report in order to avert any untoward incident, he said.

The governor also directed the Punjab government to provide foolproof security to universities.

IB Joint Director General Ijaz Akram, DIG (Operation) Punjab Police Muhammad Rafiq Butt, DIG (CID) Aftab Ahmed Cheema, DIG (Special Branch) Faisal Shahkaar, Addl Secretary Higher Education Akram Chaudhry and Addl Secretary Home Osman Anwar attended the meeting.
