The protest was held today in which they condemned the decision taken by the university administration demanding an increase in semester fees. Students chanted slogans against the university administration and said that we will never accept this decision and continue our protest till the withdrawal of heavy fee increase in the semester and transport. A large number of students holding placards took part in the demonstration to convey their voice to the university administration.
On the occasion, Shehbaz Malik, president of the people’s students federation District South, said that doubling fees are very unfair to students.
