Ludhiana, July 8
The demand to have an evening law college in the city has been gaining momentum for quite sometime now. Justifying their demand, the intelligentsia in the city feel that the more the people were aware of law, the more will they be able to fight injustice easily. Along with this legal education will make citizens more law abiding and disciplined which was the need of the hour.

Even the Panjab University authorities have maintained that the process of starting the evening law classes could be expedited if the requisite resources were mobilised from some government quarters as university was facing a financial crunch at present. R.C.Sobti, Vice-Chancellor, Panjab University, had said in a recent statement that if it was assured that minimum number of seats will be filled then the university could think of starting law classes in the evening for the working class particularly.

A.K.Bhandari, general secretary, Public Cause- a forum working for the welfare of people, said educational and intellectual growth of the city was not in proportion with its industrial development. There was just one law college in the city, which had started only recently. There was a need to study law so that people could fight against injustice, said Bhandari.

Ravi Maini, a senior citizen, said crime in the city was increasing regularly. For a population of over 35 lakh, there was just one law college. "Social organisations, educationists, NGOs must come forward to press upon university authorities to open evening law college. City has no dearth of other professional courses then why not start another law college? At the same time, awareness of law will discourage the people from overtaking or violating it", he said.
