The Financial Daily - - NATIONAL -

ISLAMABAD: The Joint Ac­tion Com­mit­tee (JAC) in an emer­gent meet­ing held on the is­sue of en­croached land of Quaidi-Azam Univer­sity, Islamabad ex­pressed pro­found ap­pre­ci­a­tion of on­go­ing anti-en­croach­ment op­er­a­tion on oc­cu­pied QAU land by the dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion, says a Press re­lease.

The meet­ing also re­solved unan­i­mously that there will be no com­pro­mise on the is­sue and this anti-oc­cu­pa­tion move­ment will con­tinue till the last inch of en­croached land is phys­i­cal­ity re­stored to the univer­sity ad­min­is­tra­tion ac­cord­ing to sci­en­tif­i­cally done de­mar­ca­tion of land by Sur­vey of Pak­istan in its re­port pre­pared in 2017.

The meet­ing also de­manded that CDA must com­plete its re­spon­si­bil­ity of hand­ing over peace­ful pos­ses­sion of com­plete par­cel of 1709 acres of land, in­clud­ing 152 acres short de­liv­ered, for which it re­ceived full price decades ago.

The meet­ing was also at­tended by Vice Chan­cel­lor Quaid-i-Azam Univer­sity Islamabad Prof. Dr. Muham­mad Ali Shah in ad­di­tion to JAC lead­er­ship in­clud­ing Pres­i­dent QAU Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion Sikan­dar Ahmed Rai, Pres­i­dent Aca­demic Staff As­so­ci­a­tion Dr. Aqeel Bukhari, Chair­man Joint Ac­tion Com­mit­tee and se­nior lawyer Aziz Nishtar, Sec­re­tary Gen­eral QAU Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion Mur­taza Noor and se­nior mem­bers of JAC, Farzana Altaf Shah, Dr An­war Iqbal, Nas­sar Iqbal, Muham­mad Fa­rooq, Dr Ish­tiaq, Dr So­hail, Shab­bir Hussain and of­fice-bear­ers of ASA QAU.

The QAU Project Di­rec­tor Engr. Bakht Rah­man ap­prised the par­tic­i­pants on the land re­trieval op­er­a­tion by the univer­sity and dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion. It was ap­prised that no­tices have been served to all the il­le­gal oc­cu­pants for va­ca­tion of their houses on the oc­cu­pied land within three days while mean­while univer­sity is de­stroy­ing il­le­gally sown crops on its oc­cu­pied land.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Vice Chan­cel­lor QAU Prof. Dr Muham­mad Ali Shah highly ap­pre­ci­ated the self­less ef­forts of the lead­er­ship of JAC that mainly com­prises QAU Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion and Aca­demic Staff As­so­ci­a­tion. He also ex­pressed re­solve that all the pos­si­ble op­tions will be uti­lized for get­ting pos­ses­sion of com­plete par­cel of land and sub­se­quent ef­fec­tive uti­liza­tion of evac­u­ated land in­clud­ing con­sol­i­da­tion of pos­ses­sion by beefed up se­cu­rity ar­range­ments.

He said that Univer­sity ad­min­is­tra­tion with coop- er­a­tion of all the stake­hold­ers would en­sure safe and con­ducive aca­demic en­vi­ron­ment. He said that no com­pro­mise will be al­lowed on this crit­i­cal lay im­por­tant univer­sity as­set.

The mem­bers of JAC pre­sented var­i­ous sug­ges­tions and as­sured their ut­most co­op­er­a­tion to the Vice Chan­cel­lor QAU. The JAC also de­manded to the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to an­nounce spe­cial pack­age for QAU to meet the an­nual deficit of 500 mil­lion ru­pees and pro­vide fur­ther fund­ing for im­prov­ing ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties at top ranked fed­eral Univer­sity of Pak­istan.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, it was also de­cided that JAC will adopt all other mea­sure to help the univer­sity re­claim it prized land as­set and con­sol­i­date its pos­ses­sion with nec­es­sary mark­ing and erec­tion of bound­ary wall to al­low stu­dents to live peace­fully and en­joy cam­pus life.
