Polytechnic will return to Shadi Lal Building

LAHORE, Sept 24: Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Elahi has said that the Government Polytechnic Institute for Women will be temporarily shifted from the Shadi Lal Building to an adjacent new block so that the building can be renovated.

He told the teachers and students of the institute on Sunday that the institute would not be closed down or moved permanently.

He said the Shadi Lal Building was a national heritage and the government wanted to rehabilitate and protect it.

He said the classrooms would be temporarily shifted to the new block. Thirty students residing in the building would also be temporarily moved to a nearby building, he added. "The institute's administration will be consulted before the shifting," he said.

The CM said a 'state of the art' library with books on technical education would be set up in the Shadi Lal building after its renovation. More computers would also be provided to the computer lab, he added.

Elahi said the Planning and Development Department (P&D) had deemed the building dangerous earlier this month. The department had also said the building required rehabilitation, he added.

He urged authorities concerned to speed up removing encroachments from the institute's land.

He said, "The Educational Reforms Programme has been successful. The provision of free education at the matriculation level and free text books have increased the literacy rate." He said the government had given incentives to the teachers, which would solve their financial problems and help them concentrate on their jobs.

The students of the Polytechnic Institute for Women had been protesting against the proposed evacuation of the Shadi Lal Building for eight days. Daily Times
