Institute evacuation part of 'privatistion', says teacher

LAHORE, Sept 18: Students and teachers of the Polytechnic Institute for Women claimed on Monday that the government's decision to shift the institute from Shadi Lal Building was part of its "privatisation plan". Punjab United Teachers Association president Professor Mohammed Arif said the building's evacuation was part of TEVTA's plan to privatise the institutes in the building. Around 500 students tried to take out a protest on Lytton Road against the decision, but the authorities of the institute closed the gate and policewomen called by the institute kept the aggressive students indoors. The students announced that they would continue protesting until the government took back its decision. They had taken out a protest rally on Lytton Road on Saturday. The students shouted anti-government and anti-police slogans. Salma, a student, said the college authorities "were ruining the students' careers" by shifting the college. She said the policewomen slapped her and baton-charged the students. Daily Times
