Traders and members of civil society have threatened to launch a protest campaign against the decision to close girls college of Naurang Town

Talking to journalists on Wednesday, Naurang Shopkeeper Union President Haji Amanullah, Vice President Gulab Khattak, General Secretary Younas Khan, advocate Ameenullah Jan, advocate Muhammad Zaman and others said closure of FEF college would deprive hundreds of female students from getting education facility near their homes.

"The entire Naurang tehsil has no other college facility where female students can continue education after matriculation," they maintained. They said shutting down of college would leave the female students of area with no option to say goodbye to education.

They said parents could not afford to send their daughters to Bannu or Lakki Marwat for getting higher education there. They asked the government to review its decision of closing FEF colleges and provide sufficient funds to the Frontier Education Foundation to enable it to run educational institutions in the entire province.
