Old Ravians Requests CM Punjab Saving GCU


Lahore, The Government College University Lahore is 148 years old and it is also an old seat for higher learning in Pakistan. Now this unique institution has been planned to spoil for bus stations. The Old Ravian Union has requested to PML-N Quaid Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Secretary Nasir Mehmood Khosa to resolve this matter and save this distinguished educational institute from great destruction.

While responding to the news, the executive committee of the Old Ravians Union requested to ensure saving the GCU as it is informed that historical Logia Gardens and only Girl’s Hostel would be shifted into terminals for the Rapid Mass Transit Bus Service.

According to the Secretary of Old Ravians Union, Mian Muhammad Cachhar Advocate that GCU is a great institution that produced world known personalities including Allama Muhammad Iqbal, Faiz Ahmad Faiz, N.M Rashid, Patras Bokhari, Nobel Laureate Prof. Dr. Abdus Salam besides hundreds of literary figures, politicians, jurists, sportsmen and scientists.

Therefore this historical institution should not be ruined for a bus terminal as such kind of historical places are the identity of a nation. The union is also of the opinion that GCU campus is a historical site and it should not be spoiled just for a bus terminal and it can be shifted to some other suitable sites like Nasir Bagh.

According to the union GCU has only one girl hostel where around 300 girl students belonging to Balochistan, Sindh, khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Azad Kashmir and remote areas of Punjab are living. Furthermore, the union executive body expressed their great concern with the loggia gardens where they have studied and spent best time of their life.

Chief Minister has been requested by the Old Ravians Union executive committee to look into the matter personally. They also admired Shahbaz Sharif greatly for taking steps to provide modern and convenient transport service to the citizens of Lahore.

The ORU executive committee is sure that Sharif brothers have done so much for their alma mater and now they would leave no stone unturned in securing the sanctity of their alma mater.
