Polytechnic institute students' plea

CHITRAL, Sept 9: The students of Government Polytechnic Institute Chitral have demanded of the government to save their future and precious time by arranging classes of second-year of diploma of associate engineer as their college has been closed down. Addressing a press conference here, the representatives of the students Abu Zar Ghaffari, Mohammad Younus, Ziauddin and others said 66 students had taken admission in DAE class of the college last year when the provincial minister of technical education inaugurated it. Telling their tale of woe, they said that as the building of the college was taken over by Abdul Wali Khan University for its Chitral campus, their class was started in the lawn of government vocational institute where even no chair was available to sit in. They added that no teacher was appointed for them and they appeared in the first year examination of DAE held by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Board of Technical Education without covering the theoretical course and performing any experiment. The distressed students said that the classes of DAE have been abolished by the government and they have no option but to discontinue their studies and waste one of their precious years. They asked the government to arrange classes of 2nd year for the existing students in the institute so that they may be able to complete their three-year program of DAE. They reiterated that they should not be punished for their no fault as they had taken admission when the college management advertised it in the public and the minister inaugurated the class. The students have also appealed the chief justice of Peshawar High Court to take suo motu notice of the matter and save their future from being wasted. ]]>
