PU book fair postponed: Punjab University (PU) has announced to postpone the annual book fair, scheduled to be held from April 25-27. Sources said the government on Tuesday barred the PU administration from holding the book fair because of security concerns.

The university administration had spent a huge amount on advertising of the book fair by putting up flexes and banners across the university. The administration had also started installing tents for bookstalls which it started to remove following the government’s directions.

A spokesperson for PU said the university has decided to postpone the book fair until further orders due to security concerns as advised by the government. He said the university had booked 130 stalls while collecting Rs20,000 for each from booksellers, publishers and bookshop owners. They further said a total amount of Rs2.6 million was collected which would be returned. The new date for the book fair will be announced later.
