QAU Alumni Association shows serious concerns on encroachment at its land

Islamabad—Showing serious concerns over increasing incidents of encroachment at the precious land of top ranked Pakistani university Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU), the Qaid-i-Azam University Alumni Association decided to form a delegation of its senior members in order to meet members of federal cabinet, parliamentarians and senior government officials.
The delegation would convey its serious concerns and apprise about the gravity of the situation. The Secretary General QAU Alumni Association, Muhammad Murtaza Noor said that all the old students of QAU have unanimous views that any encroachment at their former university would not be acceptable to them. We would utilize every possible option in this regard and would take up this important issue at all the relevant forums, he added.
He further said that it is quite unfortunate that when Pakistan‘s leading federal higher education institution is celebrating its 50th anniversary, it is being subjected to such treatment and it has been left at the mercy of land mafia to grab its more land. The old QAU students are seriously concerned about the fact that various encroachers have encroached upon over 200 acres of the university’s land, worth billions of rupees. The varsity currently has 1,507 acres land out of the 1,709 acres allotted to it by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and CDA has also failed to demarcate the land in spite of repeated requests by the QAU administration.
Due to negligence on the part of CDA, influential land mafia has occupied more QAU land. He also assured support and cooperation to QAU administration in this regard.
He requested to President of Pakistan/Chancellor, federal interior minister and chairman CDA/Mayor of Islamabad to take notice of the situation.—INP
