NWFP students Medical seats, scholarships

Medical seats, scholarships for NWFP to increase: CM
Lahore, July 27: The number of seats for NWFP students in medical colleges of Punjab as well as scholarships for talented students will be increased out of the Punjab Education Endowment Fund.

Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said this while talking to position-holder students of the NWFP, currently on a study tour of Punjab, at the Chief Minister's Secretariat on Sunday.

Secretaries of the Higher Education & Schools, the secretary information, vice-chancellors of Punjab University and Lahore College for Women and the Lahore division commissioner were also present.

He said that inter-provincial visits could play an important role in removing differences and misunderstandings, and he was thankful to the NWFP chief minister who sent the delegation of talented students to Punjab at his request.

Mr Shahbaz said the students achieved positions due to the hard work and the prayers of their parents.

He said that a state-of-the-art hospital would be set up in Swat which would be a gift from the people of Punjab to their brethren of the NWFP.

He said the Punjab Educational Endowment Fund had been established with seed money of Rs4 billion and an amount of Rs3 billion would be added to it each year.

He said the purpose of establishment of the fund was to enable the poor but talented students to continue their studies.

The chief minister further said that extremism and militancy could be rooted out through elimination of ignorance and unemployment, supremacy of law and provision of socio-economic justice.

Expressing their views, the visiting students said their study tour to Punjab had been very successful and productive.

Meanwhile, the chief minister also announced providing four ambulances of the Punjab Health Department to the Mardan Health Department for extending medical facilities to Swat affectees staying in camps there.

He revealed this during a meeting with NWFP Chief Minister Muhammad Azam Khan Hoti at the Chief Minister's Secretariat.

College teacher shot dead in Quetta
Quetta: A college teacher was shot dead outside a mosque after Maghrib prayers on the Saraiab Road. This was the second incident of its kind here in two days.

Police said that Prof Mohammad Sarwar of the Government Degree College, Quetta, was killed by armed men riding a motorcycle. His body was later shifted to the Civil Hospital for an autopsy.

Police said the incident was a case of targeted killing.

Haji Mohammad Mohsin, the principal of a government high school, had been shot dead in the same area on Thursday morning.

The Balochistan Professors and Lecturers Association announced that all colleges across the province would remain closed on Saturday in protest against the killings. The association announced a three-day mourning. Dawn

Delay in resumption of Malakand University classes
Peshawar: Students of Malakand University are uncertain about their future, as the university has failed to issue schedule for resumption of classes despite winding up of the military operation in most parts of the volatile Malakand Division.

Several students said their time was being wasted for the last several months and the government or the university administration had no plan to save their career.Scores of students, through their emails and phone calls, said they could not take any class during the last seven months and their internal or annual examination could not be arranged.

A student said it was a wise decision of the previous government to set up a university in Malakand in view of the backwardness of the area. But now the government should take measures to save the time of the university students, he added.

Another student said that classes should be resumed at the earliest in the university and special measures should be taken for the transportation of students to the university. He said that if the internally displaced persons — millions in number —could be shifted back to their hometowns in convoys, a few hundred students could also be safely sent to the university.

Set up in 2001 at Chakdara, the public sector general university has been offering bachelor and master degree courses in 11 disciplines. It has around 2,600-2,700 students on roll with more than 100 faculty members.

The university has also given affiliation to 28 degree colleges of the six districts and one tribal agency of the region, where BA/BSc examinations are scheduled to commence from August 30, as a formal notification to this effect has been issued a few days ago.

This correspondent made several attempts to get comments of the vice chancellor and registrar of the university, but both of them were not available. When reached on phone, spokesman for the university Dost Mohammad said the varsity was open as all the administrative staff and department heads had been attending their duties since June 15. But the schedule for resumption of classes could not be given because of curfew in the area, he said. Once the situation became clear, classes would resume, he stated.

The official said that the educational institutions would open in Malakand Division from August 1, but nothing could be said about the classes in the Malakand University at this stage. The university was closed in May. The News

Malakand to have eight more girls' colleges
Peshawar: Awami National Party (ANP) Working Committee member Gul Mina Bilal Ahmad says at least eight more girls' colleges will be established in Malakand Division, while the damaged educational institutions will be re-built with the financial assistance of different donor agencies.

"In order to facilitate the FA, FSc and BA, BSc female students to continue their education, the government will give Rs 5,000 to Rs15,000 to each student and lists have already been prepared in this regard," Gul said while distributing relief cheques among the female displaced students from Malakand Division here on Sunday. The cheques for Rs 5,000 to Rs 7,000 given by different relief agencies were handed over to around 100 female students.

Gul said that the present provincial government was making utmost efforts to provide quality education to women on priority basis. She said under the macro-banking system they had planned to eradicate unemployment. She said the provincial government had also made a plan to provide jobs to female prisoners. She said 500 jobless people would also be sent abroad for employment. She called upon the donor agencies to come forward and financially assist the provincial government. She said the provincial government was in dire straits but despite that it would provide free of cost quality education to the bright students of matriculation and FA FSc. Daily Times
