PUASA protests against governor's visit to PU
Lahore: Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) teachers protested on Saturday against the PU chancellor, Governor Khalid Maqbool, because he has dismissed university teachers against whom plagiarism accusations had been proved.

The PUASA teachers called the termination illegal and contrary to university policies. They protested against the chancellor and PU vice chancellor (VC) Dr Mujahid Kamran when the governor arrived at the university. The chancellor heard the teachers' opinions on the issue, but did not comment.

Maqbool visited the PU on Saturday to discuss the university's goals and reform strategies. The PU administration tightened on-campus security for the governor's visit, especially since the PUASA had already announced that they would hold the protest on the governor's arrival. The PUASA announced last month that they would meet the governor with black flags.

PUASA members stopped the governor in front of the English Department and discussed the issue with him. The teachers who stopped the chancellor include: PUASA President Dr Mumtaz Ahmed Salik, PU Law College teacher Sami Uzair, PU Institute of Communication Studies (ICS) senior teacher Dr Ahsan Akhtar Naz, and PU Economics Department teacher Abid Raza Khan.

The protesting teachers held black flags, displayed banners, and wore badges on their arms to mark their protest. Abid Khan asked the governor to reconsider his decision to dismiss the plagiarists.

PUASA President Dr Salik said, "I told the governor that the termination is illegal and against the rules of PU". He said the governor tried to avoid discussing the matter.

Later, the governor attended a presentation on the university's goals and reform strategies in the VC's committee room. He said the infrastructure of public sector universities in Pakistan is better than in India. However, he added, Indian teachers are more committed to their profession and "we also need to focus it".

Maqbool said the PU should only accommodate female students from other cities in its hostels, and use the spare hostels for academic purposes. He said a separate hostel should be established for foreign students in order to improve the university's international ranking. VC Dr Kamran told the chancellor that a separate hostel for international students was already being set up.

Maqbool said that the Punjab University had the potential to open centres of excellence in agriculture, modern languages, and performing arts. He also asked the PU administration to establish a system of teaching "excellent" English language and communication skills to students on all programmes.

Low budget: Dr Kamran told the governor that the PU had received only Rs 500,000 for research in the previous budget. He added that he had asked for the research budget to be enhanced to Rs 50 million. He said the PU's greatest problem was a shortage of PhD teachers. He said that more than 240 young lecturers were teaching at the university. Dr Kamran told the chancellor that the university planned to send 20 of these abroad to study on PhD programmes. He added that the other teachers would also be helped in further studies.

The VC said that the adoption of the Tenure Track System (TTS) would help improve the quality of research and education at the university. The VC said that the Dean's Committee had decided to get feedback from the students to assess their satisfaction levels.

Earlier, on behalf of the vice-chancellor, Hailey College of Banking and Finance Principal Prof Dr Khawaja Amjad Saeed gave a detailed briefing on the PU's future goals and reform strategy including administrative reforms. Chancellor Maqbool expressed satisfaction over the university's performance and its goals.

He also visited the English Literature Department and the Psychology and Applied Psychology Department, where the department heads, Prof Shaista Sonu Sirajuddin and Prof Dr Yasmin Farooqi, gave presentations about the courses being offered in their departments.
