Hours after the news was broadcasted, Higher Education Minster Yasir Humayun took to his Twitter debunking the claim saying there were no such plans to implement a ban.

Contrary to the minister’s remarks, reporter Akmal Soomro who broke this news stood by his claim and shared screenshots of the checklist for the private colleges to get themselves registered.
