ISLAMABAD: The student wing of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Insaf student federation (ISF) has decided to challenge the appointment of new Executive Director Higher Education Commission before the Islamabad high court.
A statement released by the ISF president Farrukh Habib on Wednesday read that the removal of HEC executive director was a clear cut violation of the HEC by-laws.
“The government has political motives behind this appointment as it wanted to control the autonomous commission for its vested political interests,” the statement alleged.
“The government wanted to grab the funds allocated for higher education of students by transferring them for their upcoming election campaign,” the statement added.
ISF leader expressed complete solidarity with the HEC authorities and urged the government to take the decision back in the greater national interest.
