protest lack of transport
Chitral --All the students of Govt Girls Degree
College Booni staged a strike blocking road for traffic,
demanding transport facility for the students coming from Awi,
Booni, Charun, Oveer, Kosht, Mordair, Muzhgoal, Warijon, Bumbagh,
Kuragh, Zait and Reshun. Students said that they had requested
and forwarded their genuine right before the College and
District administration but it were taken for granted and
therefore, we had no any other option except come into the road
to bring it in spotlight. They say that if government and
educational department of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa could not make
basic arrangements for students, why they have been given
admission in this College. They also say that we had come here
with the hope that all facilities will be available for them
including transportation service.
The very demand of the students is for the facility of transport
and for beds and clearing toilets of the Hostel. They say that
we are facing a lot of problem, to come at the time of class and
after class going to homes. One student in pathetic tone said
that this regular passage of hours has adversely affected not
only our health but also our education.
It seems also awkward not only to general public of the area but
also to students to walk daily along Mastuj road, few parents
said. They complain that there are immense chances of accidents
where traffic is rushing very high and most dim-witted people
take a dim view of their daughters. They also said that they had
been coming in college with complaints of this issue that their
daughters walk along the road of Mastuj every day, college must
have to provide this service for their daughters.
It is pertinent to note here that College administration left
no stone unturned to make possible transport arrangements for
students but was not suffice to accommodate all students.
When the intensity of strike had been escalating slowly and
gradually, TMA Mastuj, AC Mastuj, Faiz-Ur-Rehman and
particularly Sardar Hussein of Booni became successful to
convince the students back to college building and police
officers with convoy did their best to keep law and order
situation and controlling traffic and other people.
When the students came back in the area of college and gathered,
Sardar Hussain delivered a speech reiterating the services of
himself and the representatives of Chitral for the establishment
of this college and also said that they are still standby and
doing their level best to provide you all facilities including
transportation. .AC Mastuj and TMA Mastuj also provided
catharsis for students in terms of giving assurance and support.
Students slowly calm down and but put their demand of
transportation, beds and clean toilets for Hostel, blatantly
before the administration for completion in few days.
For the last one year Govt Girls Degree College Booni offers
educational facilities for about 900 students of upper Chitral.
This institution has been made functional on the hard work of
our representatives. People of upper Chitral pay heartily homage
to the representatives, for their sincere and dedicated work for
a noble cause. It is now an ideal time for the representatives
of Chitral to serve public and working for their constituency by
making proper transport arrangement and Hostel facilities for
the students on priority basis. --Alhaj
