‘Student unions’ and admissions

Published Jul 30, 2012 12:02am

THIS is apropos of the news report ‘National politics preys on newcomers at KP colleges’ (July 11).

I agree with the comments of the chairman, admissions committee of the Government College of Technology, Peshawar.

Over 90 per cent of these are neither students nor do they belong to the college in question. No such help is even required to be given to students because the admission policy in this city is much organised.

It is governed by the Combined Admission Policy (CAP). The policy is transparent and is based on 100 per cent merit.

Many such students have reportedly harassed teachers during examinations, even beating a principal and college teachers.

I, as principal of a college, also remain hostage to the acts of such fraudulent unions. Political parties should come forward and help teachers in banning these unions.
