Lahore: Scores of students of King Edward Medical university protested outside Lahore Press Club today, against illegal decision of shifting of girls in boys hotels. They were of the opinion that they will not allow the shifting of girls in boys hostel at any cost.
They also said that the allotment of boys hostel to girls will not only give rise to many social problems but also is a security risk as a postman was shot down in the same hostel a few days ago. On the other hand, the shifting of boys to hall road hostel is also impossible as there are already three to four doctors residing in each room. This mid term allotment is not only against university rules but also will give rise to residence problems for the new comer students next year.
The students gave an ultimatum to university administration to take the decision back otherwise they will be forced to block the hall road. The protest was lead by Ali Arshad, Muhammad Atif, Adnan Basheer, Salman Farooq Dar, Shaban Chandio, Qasim Rana, Farhan Ashraf, Qudrat Ullah, Yasir Anwar and nabeel Akbar.
