Karachi University Teachers’ Society (Kuts) along with public universities across Sindh Wednesday observed a black day in the institutions of higher learning across Sindh, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The academic activities had been completely suspended on the ninth consecutive day over forced cancellation of the selection boards.
As per reports, a teachers’ body representing 12 public sector universities of the province threw its weight behind the black day call.
The black day was scheduled to condemn “recent intimidation on behalf of the secretary-universities who forced the KU vice chancellor to cancel the proceedings of selection boards”.
Representatives of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (Fapuasa), Sindh chapter, and Kuts earlier announced the black day at a press conference held on the KU campus.
The teachers demanded that the government immediately remove the incumbent secretary of the universities and boards and appoint an official “who is well aware of rules and regulations”.
