JANDANWALA - Eighty seven lecturers of Division Sargodha, also studying at Allama Iqbal Open University, were sent back without laptops from a distribution ceremony held at GC University, Lahore.

These lecturers were invited for awarding laptops but during the ceremony they were told that they were not eligible in this regard as they are M Phil or PhD scholars of the AIOU. Hundred of lecturers gathered there from all over Punjab and hundreds of them were sent back due to objections, including their affiliation with the AIOU. All Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association VP Rana Waheed Khan expressed his concerns over the incident.

“We will protest against the incident all over the Punjab,” he said.
