KMU students token strike

PESHAWAR: The students of the Institute of Public Health & Social Sciences, Khyber Medical University (KMU), have observed a token strike to press for the acceptance of their demands.

A statement issued by the class representative Dr Lakhkar Khan Abrar said the students had launched token strike from Wednesday. He said they were the first batch of students doing postgraduate in the Public Health at the KMU but deplored that despite repeated demands and requests, their problems remained unresolved for the last 14 months, since the commencement of the classes. He said the students had been paid only one installment of the stipend while two installments were still awaited.

He added that the library at the facility had no reference books and journals while demanding that the facility should be upgraded as soon as possible.“Our classrooms are short of space compared with the strength of the students and the multimedia remained out of order most of the time,” he said, adding that the situation had been brought into the notice of the KMU administration but no action was taken in this regard.The news
