If advertisements are not placed in a week, the contempt of court action will be taken against the secretary colleges, the court said.

At the next hearing, the secretary colleges will appear in person in the court and submit the report, the court ordered the secretary.

The court expressed concern over the future of thousands of children who were given admission for associate degree of BS. “Education department won’t even give jobs to associate degree students,” the court remarked.
