NTS centre in Sukkur
Sukkur, May 13, 2008: I would like to give voice to my feelings through the courtesy of your esteemed
newspaper. I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities
of NTS and Dr. Atta-ur-Rehaman chairman, Higher Education Commission-Islamabad
and make appeal to them on my personal behalf and on behalf of other candidates
of the region. Sir, NTS authorities conduct exams/ test across the country
especially in connection of M.Phil / PhD admission /scholarship. Exam is
conducted after every three months all over Pakistan for that purpose they have
set many centers where candidates may appear for the test.
In Sindh province
they have set only two centers one is located in Hyderabad and another in
Karachi. Though many candidates appear from interior Sindh, yet they have to
travel to Hyderabad or Karachi to take exam. It is very difficult for a
candidate to under take ten hour journey to reach Karachi and eight hour journey
to reach Hyderabad. In these hard days it is very difficult for teachers to make
both ends meet. On the other hand traveling itself is not less than a fatigue. I
may mention here that Sukkur is a centre point which connects at least ten
districts of Sindh province i.e Ghotki, Khairpur, Noushero Feroze, Nawabshah,
Jacobabad, Kashmore, Shikarpur, larkana, Qamber @ Shahdadkot and Sukkur itself.
The Institutes that come into the jurisdiction of these ten districts are:
Ghulam Muhammad Mahar Medical College, Sukkur-IBA, SZABIST-Larkana, Chandka
Medical College, Quaid-i-Awam Engineering & Technology University, Peoples
Medical College, Shah Abdul Latif University, Degree colleges of the region,
postgraduate studies centers, Law colleges of the region and many other private
colleges and institutions.
Therefore, the concerned authorities are requested to
establish a centre in Sukkur for interior Sindh candidates (teachers) to save
time, resources and much more save us from the frustration of traveling. Taking
this nice opportunity, it is also suggested that the answer sheet may be
reshaped and redesigned on the pattern of FPSC-Islamabad where a candidate has
two options for each question, if one option is attempted wrong the next is
available to write correct answer. It would be better to provide carbon copy or
assessed copy to candidates with answer key to make exam more transparent and
fair. Hope that these suggestions will be considered in the light of justice and
fair play. I also request to all other interested candidates of the area to make
more appeals to the concerned authorities to establish a centre in Sukkur. There
are many public sector institutions like as Sukkur-IBA and Public School, Sukkur
which may provide the facility to conduct the test peacefully and smoothly.

DJ College sports ground taken over despite protests
Karachi: The wall of the sports ground of Government DJ Science College
has been demolished and heavy machinery was installed to undertake construction
of proposed Educational Complex.
The government of Sindh earlier issued
orders to immediately vacate the sports ground of the college and hand it over
to the government for building the Education Complex. The professors and
students of the college also protested against the annexation of the ground. The
ground adjacent to Government Commerce College is under the Rangers' control for
the last several years. It was during Zia-ul-Haq's period that most of the
buildings belonging to the education departments were handed over to the
Rangers. A little portion of the ground was, however, left vacant for the sports
activity of the students of the DJ College. The Rangers have established
regional office on a part of the ground.
The Principal of the college
has also signed a letter, reportedly under duress, handing over the sports
ground to the government. The previous caretaker government also issued similar
orders to the Principal of the college to get the control for apparent
construction of the Education complex but was stopped due to the pressures of
the students and teachers of the college.
The prestigious DJ (Dayaram
Jethamull) Government Science College, established in 1887,was the only college
left where a playground had not been encroached upon, while other city colleges'
playgrounds were either taken over by the Rangers or were trespassed upon by the
settlers coming from different parts of the country.
It is, however, to
be mentioned here that DJ College has already been declared a cultural heritage
by the Government of Sindh. The Education Complex will house the office of the
Secretary, Education, who already has two offices in his possession, one at
Tughlaq House, Sindh Secretariat, and the other at the Sindh Textbook Board
Office. The Director, Colleges, Director, Private Schools, and other education
projects offices will be built in this complex. Legally, a summary has to be
moved for its annexation, though it's a property of DJ Science College but is
controlled by Rangers. The News
