Since the inception of TISF in 1997, the students have yet not been able to see its constructive role as a student forum. Every elected TISF panel follows nearly the same agenda as the previous one and organizes the same old Events, the list of which needs not to be mentioned. Go and ask a graduate of 2002 and he will give u the details!!
Although the addition of seats like Campus Development and the Activity secretary last year gave some hope to the hopeless, but both of them, although equally talented and commendable, did nothing but helped the President and the General Secretary organize the S.O.E (Same Old Events). Coming towards the worst part, our students here have not seemed to mind this at all. I was talking to a senior a few days back and he said: common sarim stop being a Qaide-e-Azam and let us enjoy ourselves!!
I know I am not the first person who has ever raised this issue, but have we ever considered any alternatives? The concerned people, which are gone long ago used to say: …k…don’t vote becoz TISF sucks!! But is this the solution?
Astoundingly, for the first time in my three years here, I was discussing a proposal or rather some new reforms for the TISF the day before yesterday and the nine people sitting with me pledged that they too wanted a change and will help me spread the word.
Within 2 hrs the next morning, thanks to the super-9, more then 60 students including half of the candidates of the new TISF panel pledged that they were ready for the new TISF reforms and promised that they won’t take part in the elections this semester.
• By dissolving all the present seats of the TISF, independent Students Societies should be made including the few societies which are currently working example, Dramatics, Islamic, literary societies and by adding the new ones.
• These societies will have Non-Elected Presidents selected by the concerned students of the respective societies.
• Instead of the President, GS, FS etc, a general student council will be elected which will bridge the gap between the students and the faculty/administration.
• At least 7 council members will be elected in November Fall semester.
• Every Society will have its own proposed budget and calendar.
• The societies and the council both will report to the TISF coordinator and their own respective Society Coordinators.
