TANK, 14 October: The students of government degree college Jandola have staged a demonstration in Frontier Region (FR) Tank against the transfer of 18 lecturers from their college to Kurram Agency by the directorate of education FATA.

Talking to TNN the protestors said that more than 450 students were enrolled in the college and the transfer of so many lecturers at a time had literally rendered the college dysfunctional and put their studies at stake. The protesting students said that they would continue their protest  until their demand was met. One of the student said” all of our teaching staff in the college have been transferred to Kurram Agency except the principal and we demand the political administration and education directorate FATA to cancel the transfer of our 18 lecturers to Kurram Agency”.

FR Tank Assistant Political Agent Naseer Khan said that they had sent a letter to the FATA education department to arrange lecturers for the students to save their precious time.
