PM Imran Khan Has Made A Statement About Student Unions

By Rameeza Ahmad | 2 Dec, 2019

Prime Minister Imran Khan finally talked about student unions in Pakistan.

On Friday, Pakistani students and even professionals all across the country have been holding demonstrations against the government to reinstate student unions which have been banned for several decades. While the government did not make any official recognition of the marches, Imran Khan did finally tweet on the topic of student unions.

The movement has been gaining momentum for some time now. The student march was organized by people to make use of the same.

There were some who praised the Prime Minister and his response. People saw how he had given a neutral response and appreciated it.

A lot of people seemed to agree that student unions could not be reinstated without a ‘proper code of conduct’ being defined for them

But there were many others who did not agree with this, and were disappointed in Prime Minister Imran Khan’s stance on the entire issue. People pointed out that student unions are not solely to blame.

Others called it hypocrisy 

Some brought up old tweets by Imran Khan which talked about bans on student unions being completely uncalled for.

While Prime Minister Imran Khan did not completely dismiss the idea of student unions being reinstated, it seems like his vague promise on working on a code of conduct to help reinstating them did not go down well with many.
