Members of the Assembly should give their suggestions to eliminate harassment cases said Kamran Bangash while responding the Adjournment Motion of Nighat Orakzai of PPP.

He said that a lecturer who is teaching in the university or department will not get examination from his own students.

He said that the Higher Education Department has scrutinized Vice Chancellors for eight universities adding if there is any harassment or any other grievance against any candidate then we have to exclude his name from selection process. – APP
