The teachers from various departments were wearing black armbands to mark the protest against the HEC chairman and his ‘incompetent’ team. The teachers also demanded the dismissal of HEC Chairman Dr. Tariq Banuri.

Prof Chaudhry stressed that the Punjab government must fulfill its promises made to the academic community and said that the HEC team has failed to resolve the problems being faced by the faculty members in universities and promote higher education and research culture in the country.
