Orange Line Metro train to affect PU Housing Society land

LAHORE: Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) general body censured LDA for trying to acquire the land of PU Housing Society (Twon I) instead of influential political personalities’ vacant land situated near to the route of Metro Orange Train Project.
Addressing a press conference at the University Club, ASA president Dr Hassan Mobeen Aalam, Secretary Dr Mahboob Hussain and Housing Society President Prof Dr Shahid Kamal said that LDA was trying to save the land of Saith Abid, Karamat Ali Khokhar and other influential personalities. They said  hundreds of families were living there and many more houses were being constructed. They said that LDA had given final approval of the PU Society in 2013 following which a large number of teachers have settled there along with their families.

Earlier in the morning, hundreds of teachers participated in the ASA General Body meeting and expressed their resolve that even a single inch of the teachers’ land wouldn’t be allowed to acquire by LDA. They said that now the value of the land was more than Rs 10 billion hard earned by the teachers after their consistent struggle of more than 13 years. The teachers also decided to submit a writ petition besides protest demonstrations inside and outside the campuses.

All universities will support PU: FAPUASA president

ISLAMABAD: Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) President Prof Naimatullah Leghari has said that the government should look for alternative land for the project. He said universities’ teachers from all over Pakistan were with the teachers of Punjab University and they would provide their allout support to the teachers of PU.
Meanwhile, Punjab University Academic Staff Association and the PU Land Management Committee have sent letters to the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) against the alleged inclusion of PU Employees Housing Society’s (Town 1) land in the Metro Orange train project.
