IJT’ real demand is to reinstate expelled students, which will not be accepted: PU Registrar


LAHORE: (Wednesday, April 27, 2016): Punjab University Registrar Prof Dr Liaqat Ali has said that the real demand of Jamiat is to reinstate those expelled students who are involved in various incidents of violence on campus which will not be accepted at all. Instead, the university administration will continue taking disciplinary actions against the students who will take law into their hands, he added. Talking to media outside Vice Chancellor’s office, Prof Dr Liaqat Ali said that around 42 thousand students were studying on campus while even a few dozen students could not participate in the demonstration which clearly reflected that the protest had met failure. He said that most of the participants of the protest demonstration were not even students of Punjab University and they were outsiders and were wearing masks to hide their identity. He said that the female faculty members have pointed out that most of the girls in the demonstration were not PU students. Prof Dr Liaqat Ali said that Jamiat wanted to participate in the upcoming book fair and IJT’s this hidden demand would also not be accepted. He said that IJT demands were not genuine and based on lies. He said that the university administration had closed several gates for the protection of teachers, employees and students and cards were being checked keeping in view current security situation of the country. However, he said, IJT wanted to interfere in security and Jamiat wanted to endanger lives of everybody on campus by demanding opening of the closed gates. He said that the university was not charging any parking fee from students and Jamiat’s this demand was also based on lie. Dr Liaqat Ali said that there were no any complaints regarding food quality in the mess of girls’ hostels. He said that Punjab University had the largest fleet of buses as compared to any other university in Pakistan and the university administration was purchasing new buses every year.
