To present a charter of demands, including the restoration of the student union Student solidarity march is being organized across the country under the leadership of the Student Action Committee (SAC) in which students, volunteers and people from different walks of life are involved.

Representatives of student organizations from Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Azad Kashmir are part of this action committee. For the past 3 weeks, the Student Action Committee has been organizing a Corner Meeting in public and private educational institutions to manage its march.
Said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government disappointed the students and left the direction and reduced the higher education budget by almost half Whereas Pakistan has been listed as one of the countries where education costs very little. In this regard, graduates of Journalism from Beacon House National University Lahore and one of the organizers of the event was Haider Kleim. That compulsion to force us to come on the streets is an oath which each student has to sign at the time of admission there is basically no ban on student unions but restrictions are imposed by certain orders. So students cannot participate in demonstrations or politics on campus.
Haider Kleim, administrator of the Progressive Students Federation (PRSF) and PSC, also said that is one of the many demands of the march participants to remove these restrictions. This has prevented students from making unions He said that the affidavit was also being challenged in the Lahore High Court But there was little hope of a solution.
