Students protest due to lack of security in a Pakistani college
Students of Government Degree College in Pakistan on Saturday demonstrated against lack of security and shortage of teachers, media reports said.
The students, who blocked the Umary-Sewai Road for over an hour, told Dawn News it was the only degree college in the entire Mamond tehsil with over 1,500 students enrolled.
They alleged that the institution had no security arrangements causing fear among students and teachers.
The students alleged that not a single policeman was deployed at the college for security purposes.
Ali Rehman, Luqman Khan, Riaz Khan and other students’ leaders claimed that senior officials of the district administration and police had promised in November last year to deploy policemen there, but to no avail, reported Dawn News.
The students’ leaders urged the district administration and the police to deploy police personnel in their institution like the other colleges of the district without delay.
The students also voiced their concern over the recent transfer of various teachers from the college.
They said that frequent transfer of teachers was not unacceptable to them as it wasted their precious time as the vacant posts were often not filled, reported Dawn News.
