Students Union restoration across Pakistan, PM Imran KHAN makes an important statement

ISLAMABAD - Over the issue of the Students Union restoration across country, PM Imran KHAN makes an important statement.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to allow the restoration of student unions subject to the establishment of a "comprehensive and enforceable code of conduct".

"Universities groom future leaders of the country and student unions form an integral part of this grooming," said the prime minister in a post on Twitter.

Referring to the student unions of the past, the prime minister said that they had become "violent battlegrounds and completely destroyed the intellectual atmosphere on campuses".

He, however, clarified that unions will be "restored and enabled to play their part" in grooming the future leaders of the country.

The premier said that a "comprehensive and enforceable conduct" based on the "best practices in internationally renowned universities" will be developed so that their restoration can be made possible.
