PTU employees on Tuesday stage protest against decision of 2nd State Technical  University.

 

Jalandhar, September 16, 2014: Objecting the decision of Punjab Cabinet regarding the second state Technical University, Punjab Technical University (PTU) Employees’ Front staged protest by putting up black ribbons on their attire.
The protest was staged in the premises of the campus itself and the front demanded from the Punjab Cabinet to review the decision taken. They already had a word with Technical Minister a couple of times but of no use.
President of the Front Kamlesh Kumar and Senior Vice-President Paramjeet Singh said, “PTU has gained due reputation after putting hard efforts and is standing tall with the help of the whole team. But, due to interference of few people and their vested interested, the demand of other state technical university has been raised with vague reasons. Instead of coming up with another technical university, there shall be more research oriented universities for those students and parents who are the victims of private institutions that are looting them now and then. PTU itself had a word regarding the same with Punjab CM in July 2013 but again due to few self-centered people, the words have been altered.”
Front told that the demand letter has been submitted to Punjab Technical Minister Madan Mohan MIttal; BJP President Kamal Sharma and Local Body Minister Anil Joshi.
