Government Sadiq Degree College for Girls Bahawalpur

Bahawalpur : April 02 : Teachers and students of the 72-year-old Government Sadiq Degree College for Girls continued their protest against the Punjab government for declaring the institution a women university. The protesters claimed that the college had been imparting free education to thousands of poor students of the region for the last seven decades and right to free education had been usurped through the decision. They appealed to Caretaker Chief Minister Najam Sethi and the Punjab governor to stop the intervention of the Islamia University vice-chancellor in the college affairs. They alleged that the IUB vice-chancellor had not shown the official order in this regard, while Dr Tanveer Turabi was holding meetings in on college premises illegally. They said the women university in Bahawalpur should be established separately and they would not allow anyone to deprive the students of this prestigious institution. Government Sadiq Degree College for Girls was established by then Amir of Bahawalpur Nawab Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan in the early 40s. They said that separate land should be acquired for establishing the women university. The news.
