In response to the appeal of Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS), teachers boycotted classes on Tuesday in protest against the approval of leave encashment, promotion, pay-fixing, appointing directors, and dismissing the finance director on behalf of the teaching and non-teaching staff.
In a consultation meeting held at the Karachi University Staff Club at 11 am and 1:30 pm, the association was assured of the support of the employees and students.
A KUTS statement read that the university administration should immediately release a complete schedule for the selection boards of teachers and that the problems of teachers, officers, employees, and students are symptomatic of mismanagement. Until their demands are met KUTS warned the protest would continue.
The Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba and Peoples Students Federation condemned the teachers saying that KU has long suffered from financial and administrative crises.
Moreover, the university’s students have faced an uncertain situation for many years, which has resulted in severe mental anguish among them. According to their separate statements, students pay full fees to attend classes, but teachers’ protests waste their time.
This practice has been going on for a long time, causing damage to the KU structure and negatively impacting the minds of new students.
