OUR STAFF REPORTER KHANEWAL - Guardians, parents and students held protest against a government college administration for allegedly putting future of 1,200 FA/FSc students at stake. The protesters appealed to the officials concerned to shift the FA/FSc classes from Government Postgraduate College Khanewals new campus to the old campus. The college has not provided an atmosphere suitable for studies just allegedly to proved benefit for the private colleges established around the Government Colleges Old Campus. These private colleges are owned by the teachers of the government college. Moreover, the students have to travel a long distance to reach the college. Earlier, the colleges old building was situated in Civil Lines, because this college has been upgraded to post-graduate level, and strength of the student as well as teachers increased with the passage of time. It was very difficult for the college administration to accommodate the huge number of students in the class rooms of the old campus. Therefore, about 25 acres of land was allocated by the district government to the college administration for the construction of new campus of the college for the graduate and post-graduate level classes near the Jahanian Road Bypass, Police Lines Road Khanewal. Now construction of new campus has been completed at a cost of Rs 40.493 million by the provincial government. In the first phase, eight class rooms, four laboratories, one office for principal and one office for clerical staff and staff room have been built for 1,200 students, 27 teachers. However, the old campus building lacked a library, an auditorium, a sports ground and even a mosque. Most of the students are wasting their precious time outside the classes, on stairs and college canteen. Likewise, the college has no transport facility and the students have to consume a huge amount in the shape of transport fares. Mostly they reach the college by riding on the roofs, frames and bumpers of the public transport put their life at risk. Khanewal District Coordination Officer Rashid Mehmood also demanded that the classes of FA/FSc should be shifted to the Old Campus and graduate and post-graduate classes should continue in New Campus. On the other hand, New Campus Principal Mirza Ghulam Dastgir said that the decision of Old Campus was made by College Principal Bayrum Khan Daha in consultation with senior teachers. He added, We are trying to resolve the students problems, saying that at the stage, it was very difficult to purchase buses and construct new class rooms immediately because of funds shortage.
