Teachers warn of protest over delay in VCs hiring
Lahore: The Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) has
announced that it would launch a protest campaign from Friday (today) against
the Punjab government for delay in appointment of vice-chancellors (VCs) at four
FAPUASA central secretary general Prof Dr Zafar
Noon said that, in the first phase, academic boycott would be observed at four
varsities – the Government College University (GCU) Lahore; University of
Education, Lahore; Bahauddin Zakariya University (BZU), Multan; and University
of Sargodha, Sargodha – which have been waiting for regular VCs for the last
seven months. If the issue was not resolved, he warned, academic boycott would
be extended to all public sector universities across the country.
Zafar Noon said BZU Multan and the UoE had not been able to approve their annual
development budget in absence of VCs. He added that academic and administrative
affairs of the four varsities were affected badly owing to delay in appointment
of regular VCs. It was unfortunate that the appointments were not being made
owing to tussle between the Punjab chief minister and the Punjab governor.
The FAPUASA secretary general said that research and development works
at the varsities had been affected while teachers were also disturbed –
especially those desiring to foreign country to read out research papers. He
said faculty members from public varsities across the country would protest on
Friday (today) against the Punjab government for delaying appointment of the
VCs. Teachers would hold a protest demonstration outside the Lahore Press Club
after Namaz-e-Jumma, he added.
It is pertinent to mention that the CM
and the governor have locked horns over the appointment of VCs at the four
varsities. Governor Sardar Latif Khosa recently approved appointment of VCs for
three varsities, including the Government College University (GCU) Lahore;
University of Education, Lahore ; and Bahauddin Zakariya University (BZU)
Multan. However, the candidates approved by the governor were not the ones
recommended by Shahbaz Sharif. Earlier, the governor had rejected the Punjab
government's summary seeking appointment of Prof Dr Muhammad Akram Chaudhry as
the VC of University of Sargodha, Sargodha observing there were serious
allegations of financial and moral corruption against him. Later, the CM had
formed a committee to investigate candidature of Prof Dr Muhammad Akram Ch who
had already served the varsity as VC on a four-year term.
sources, after the governor did not approve the names recommended by the chief
minister, the CM's Secretariat had once again moved the summary to the
Governor's House seeking appointment of those recommended by the CM – with a
note that the government would notify their appointment under Article 105 of the
Constitution of Pakistan if the governor did not approved the names this time.
It is worth mentioning here that the Punjab government claims the governor is
bound to act on the CM advice. However, the governor's stance is that, in the
capacity of chancellor, the advice of CM was not biding on him.
Higher Education secretary Haseeb Athar said the department had so
far not received summary regarding the appointment of VCs at the four varsities.
