Yesterday a huge lot of students belonging to different educational institutions of the country gathered across Pakistan to hold ‘Students Solidarity March’ for unearthing their core unresolved issues.
Students gathered on streets holding banners, flags and placards mentioning their concerns and demands.
This March was inclined towards bringing into limelight the difficulties faced by the students and to open the eyes and hears of the concerned authorities for making educational environment highly improved and upgraded.
Most specific demands were restoration of student unions, demilitarization of campuses, a 10 percent increase in the education budget and a decline in the level of high fees structure.
This March also became Top trend in social media in Pakistan. Lets have a look on the images and videos of the Students Solidarity March where many politicians also backed this rally.
I fully support Restoration of students unions, ban on students unions is anti democratic,we can always ensure that students politics must remain violence free and regulations may be introduced for smooth functioning but ban on students politics amounts to limit future politics
