Almost 2,000 Sindh University girl students face grim future

The Vice-Chancellor University of Sindh Professor (Meritorious) Dr. Mohammad Siddique Kalhoro has said that five thousand students, including more than two thousand girl students, are living in boys and girls hostels of the university, and if the dormitories are abolished to reduce the financial burden, as many as two thousand female students belonging to the rural areas of Sindh may be deprived of higher education.

He said that 50% of the positions in all 61 disciplines were obtained by the female students in all 61 disciplines at the varsity residing in the hostels every year because they were being provided with the best environment in the hostels adding that a total of 48000 students were studying in different teaching departments, institutes and centres simultaneously.
