Quaid-e-Awam Engineering University students hold demo in Larkana

LARKANA: The students of Quaid-e-Awam Engineering University Campus held a protest demonstration outside the main gate of the Campus here on Tuesday against unavailability of basic necessities while holding placards in their hands and shouting slogans in favour of their just demands.

The protesting students Amir Ali Khand, Hasnain Hyder Phulpoto, Mohsin Jokhio, Habib Soomro, Wajid Kalhoro and others complained that they were studying in the last year of their degree. They said that they are charged fees annually for provision of various facilities including transport facilities, WiFi, clean drinking water but they have not been given these facilities till today.

They said that the water level is 1403 against 400 which is very dangerous for human consumption as underground water of Larkana has already been declared arsenic. They said that there are only two bus points for 800 students whereas Rs3500 are charged from each student. They alleged that canteen food is supplied to them which is unfit and substandard. They further alleged that a cup of tea is available at Rs25 outside the campus but they get it at Rs60 which is unjust.

They said that they made several complaints to the Vice Chancellor Zahid Hussain Abro but no respite has so far been provided to them as if they are made to suffer which is why they are out to protest against injustices with the future of the country demanding their fundamental requirements.

They urged the higher powers including Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and Education Minister Syed Sardar Shah to take notice of the high-handedness and provide remedy without further loss of time.
