Ludhiana, February 13

The PCTE Group of Institutes organised a race to promote the message of ending the violence against women.

Uganda Embassy Minister Counsellor Margaret Nkore Kedisi flagged off the race which began from the campus II and concluded at the campus I.

More than 550 students and 15 faculty members of the college took part in the event. The participants were motivated and cheered by their classmates and other faculty members. The students ran for about two kilometres.

Among boys, Sunil Kumar bagged the first position, Ussam and Hamad bagged second and third positions, respectively. Among girls, Simran of BCA II bagged the first position, while Chimmi and Glorious Niyomoongere secured the second and the third positions, respectively.

Prof Swapan Chanana, Unit Head of the PCTE, said such events helped the students to realise the benefits of maintaining good health and lifestyle. “Violence against women is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world. The run was an effort on the part of the institute to create awareness regarding violence against women,” said College Director Dr KNS Kang.
