Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr Asghar Zaidi along with his wife, Mrs Kiran Zaidi, attended the mushaira organised by the University's newly-established Women Development Center. Eminent female poets from different parts of the country came to the Mushaira and presented their poetry.
Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr Asghar Zaidi said from sports to culture women need to be given the chance and support to excel in all areas. He said they at GCU are making the best possible efforts to ensure the participation of female students in all kinds of academic, co-curricular, sports and cultural activities. "We need more women to take part in leadership so that their voices can be heard," he concluded.
