WANA: The district administration South Waziristan has provided internet service at Nikka Public School and College for students who could now attend online classes during lockdown amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The students of the districts have been protesting for the last two weeks in the district, demanding that they should be given the internet facility so as they could attend online classes.
The students termed the move a great development as around 100 students would be benefited of the facility daily.
However, they demanded of the district administration to provide the facility in other tehsils of the districts so as maximum number of students could be benefited of it.
They were of the view that it is next to impossible for all the students of the district together at one facility.
They said that especially for the female students, it would be impossible to cover long distance and come to the Musa Nikka school and college; hence such facilities should be extended elsewhere in the district so as the precious time of the students should not be wasted.
The district administration South Waziristan has provided internet service initially at Nikka Public School and College here for students who are studying at various universities of the country to attend online classes during lockdown.
Deputy Commissioner South Waziristan Hameedullah Khattak directed Assistant Commissioner to immediate provide internet service at convenient place to the students so that their precious time could be saved.
He said that due to coronavirus lockdown the students were restricted in their respective areas while the HEC has directed all universities to start online classes, adding that keeping in view the situation the district administration is providing internet service at different places for students to remain in contact with their universities.
