FAISALABAD: Some students from Government College University Faisalabad (GCUF) announced on Saturday they would set up a hunger strike camp in front of Faisalabad Press Club from Monday (June 18). They are protesting against not being allowed to take examinations for alleged low attendance. Talking to media on Saturday, Muhammad Anwar, one of the students, said that the university administration was about to ruin the future of about 1,500 students.“We attended regular classes but some teachers misplaced their roll call record,” he said. He said that the misplaced roll calls were not the students; fault. He said that 65 per cent attendance was required to take the exam and that none of the students denied entry had less attendance than required. He said, “If the university administration does not consider our requests, we will launch a stronger protest.” A GCUF spokesman said that only students with less than 65 per cent attendance record were being denied entry.
