Students protest closure of Waziristan college – 09 Nov 2022
Girls who passed their matric exam can’t study further due to the non-availability of a college
Girl students of Government Girls Degree College Wana, Lower Waziristan tribal district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) on Tuesday staged a protest demonstration, demanding the opening of the degree college which is closed for the past two years.
The protesters demanded of the district administration and provincial government to take notice of the large number of staff drawing salaries without performing their duty and said that those girls who passed their matric exam can’t study further due to the non-availability of a college.
They said that there were hundreds of girls who were interested in higher education but could not follow their dream due to the closure of college without any valid reason.
They alleged that the district administration and provincial government was equally responsible in this regard and they were denying local girls their birth right.
These girl students said that extremism could only be contained by educating local youth but the provincial government and the education department had a different agenda instead.
