KMSMC ASKED TO VACATE HOSTEL
The district administration has directed Kh Muhammad Safdar Medical College (KMSMC) Sialkot to vacate the hostel of Govt Allama Iqbal College for Women.
The hostel is being used by the female students of KMSMC for the last several years despite the establishment of KMSMC's hostels. The deputy commissioner made the direction while talking to a delegation of female staff of Govt College Women University (GCWU) Sialkot. The GCWU delegation told the DC that the female staff of the GCWU was suffering great difficulties due to non-availability of a hostel. They further told the DC that the hostels for the students of Kh Muhammad Safdar Medical College Sialkot have been established but the KMSMC's female students were still occupying it for several years.
They urged the DC that the KMSMC students be sent back to the KMSMC hostels and the female staff of the GCWU be allowed to stay at hostel. He also directed the officials concerned to work out on the feasibility report for the establishment of hostels for the working women at Sialkot. The thousands of female workers do jobs in local factories and offices and other institutions, but there was no hostel for them, as Sialkot lacks hostel for the working women.
The women, working at Sialkot, belong to the suburbs areas of Sialkot have been suffering from great ordeal in residing in the other unsuitable rental places due to prolonged lack of any hostel for them.
