Move to 'privatise' two colleges withdrawn
Karachi: The Sindh government has withdrawn a notification announcing the handing over of two government colleges to an NGO, Zindagi Trust.

Earlier on Thursday, students and teachers of the Khatoon-e-Pakistan Government Girls' College blocked Stadium Road on Thursday during an almost two-hour-long protest against the "privatisation" of their college. The Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) demanded that authorities undo a notification in this regard dated Sept 23 or colleges from across the province would launch a protest on October 9.

Sindh Education Secretary said that the Sindh government has withheld the notification vis-a-vis handing over the colleges to the Zindagi Trust for the time being.

Students and teachers of the college chanted slogans against giving the control of educational institutes to private organisations and termed this an anti-education step. The SPLA members were also present at the scene and said that the colleges being given to Zindagi Trust were among the top 10 colleges in the city and there was no reason why they should be 'handed over' to 'private' NGOs.

The SPLA also threatened that all activities of the Khatoon-e-Pakistan Government Girls' College and Rana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics would remain suspended on Friday as a protest against the government notification. They also said that they would again hold a protest on Saturday before Rana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College and warned that on Monday all the activities of all colleges in Karachi would be suspended in protest.

A couple of days ago the Sindh government announced handing over the Khatoon-e-Pakistan and a few other colleges to the trust while the Sindh chief secretary issued the notification in this regard on Thursday.

Following the protest, the SPLA organised a press conference at the Rana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics. They demanded that the Director-General Colleges, Sindh, and the Secretary, Education, should be replaced with pro-education officers.

They demanded of the president, the prime minister, the Sindh governor, the Sindh CM, chief secretary, and education minister to cancel the notification of September 23 or colleges from across the province would launch a protest. Director-General, Colleges, Rafique Siddiqi, was not available for comments. The News
