Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Monday urged authorities to take action against the Vice Chancellor of Government College University Lahore (GCUL) for allowing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to hold a gathering on the premises of the educational institute.

During the ceremony, PTI Chairman Imran Khan also addressed the participants, demanding the resignation of Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja in lieu of the Prime Minister Office (PMO) audio leaks that surfaced on social media a day earlier.

“Now new audio leaks have come forward where the chief election commissioner has been proven to be the house-servant of Nawaz Sharif," he added.

The PTI chief claimed that in another audio leak the CEC apparently asks the PML-N supremo “who should be disqualified” and that he will “disqualify Imran in the Toskhakhana case”.

“If he [CEC] had any shame, he would resign,” taunted Imran, “but he has no shame. That is why we will have to get him to resign.”

Following the former premier's speech, Maryam Nawaz, taking to Twitter, called for strict action against the GCUL VC.

"Strict action must be taken against Vice Chancellor Government College Uni for desecrating an educational institution by lending it to a Fitna & organising his jalsa on the premises," she added.

The PML-N leader said that using a seat of learning for political hate-mongering is a crime that should not go unpunished.

Meanwhile, Punjab Governor Muhammad Balighur Rehman, as Chancellor, took notice of the incident.

According to Express News, Rehman regretted that a famous educational institute was made into a political hotspot, adding that there was no space for such political gatherings in universities.

He said that the children were the country's national asset and they should not be dragged into politics.
