Sindh is all set to lift the 35-year old ban on the student unions in the province.
The Chief Minister has given advice to the authorities for restoring the student unions and for removing the ban on them, as informed by the Sindh government spokesperson—Murtaza Wahab while addressing a press conference in Karachi.
The students would be permitted to take part in the political activities, he mentioned. They said that they would soon be making a law about the student unions.
The bill would be presented in the Cabinet first and then Sindh Assembly, as per Wahab.
On the 29th of November, the streets of Pakistan echoed with the chants of freedom and were a sea of red as students throughout the nation came out to ask for their rights. Nearly 38 cities took part in the Students Solidarity March.
On top of the list of demands raised by the students, the demand for revoking the ban on the making of student unions imposed 35 years ago by General Zia-ul-Haq.
