The protestors said that technical person has been appointed for the board controller and the students are in fear of for their future. The protestors demanded that the KIU Board should be separated and a new board should be established with the name of Gilgit-Baltistan Education Board.
While talking to Mountain TV the students said that the papers they had given were very good of what they were expecting. But, the KIU board administration is playing with our future for their personal interest. They demanded that the board should fix this issue otherwise they will the students will further protest against the board.
