Federal Public Service Commission merit failure

FPSC has failed to deliver on merit so far
Islamabad: The Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC), a constitutional body established to uphold merit, is unfortunately far behind from discharging its prime responsibility to finalise high-profiled appointments in public departments.

"The principle of justice delayed justice denied applies to the FPSC with its action of keeping pending four Grade-18 appointments in the Ministry of Information Technology and its subordinate departments for the last more than two years," sources said.

Unfortunately, the FPSC, working without a chairman since March 30, 2009, made a single appointment against five posts till now despite starting the procedure from January 2007 whereas four have been left in a state of uncertainty, they added.

According to the information, the Ministry of Information Technology had to induct five system analysts into the Pakistan Computer Bureau (PCB) taking one each from the Punjab, Sindh, the NWFP, Balochistan, the Northern Areas and the AJK.

Muhammad Akram has been appointed under case No.4-150/2007-R (18/2007) and others from Sindh, the Punjab, Balochistan and AJK-NA are still waiting despite the NWFP quota was filled in January 2009 on the nomination of Sarwat Habib, Director (FS).

"The commission should have inducted all the five instead of making appointment from the NWFP or should have held the same case till decision on all those on the merit list," FPSC officials and victims said.

FPSC Secretary Shaukat Hayat Durrani accompanied by a director concerned denied the charges.About delayed action in the case of four members and induction of one person on the quota of the NWFP, they said the commission had dispatched a letter to the PCB, seeking its opinion as to whether these also meet the required training period.

The FPSC secretary said the commission had nothing like discrimination on these appointments. "We have neither withdrawn nor are we taking fresh interviews for these vacant posts as we are to induct from those short-listed." The group consisting of the FPSC's own officials further said the commission had become selective in inducting its favourites, particularly in the case of computer analysts.

Brilliant student from AJK deserves much better
Rawalpindi: A brilliant student belonging to the AJK, who secured top honours in the recently-held Higher Secondary School Certificate Annual Examination conducted by the Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, needs attention of the concerned authorities so that he could realise his dreams.

Sudheer Ahmed (Roll Number 743946) appeared in the HSSC examination (humanities group) and bagged first position by securing 852 marks. He has also been awarded a gold medal.

Sudheer Ahmed, a resident of Hattian Bala, Muzaffarabad, belongs to a poor family. His father works as a mason. The teenager passed the Secondary School Certificate Examination from Mirpur, AJK. Later, he migrated to Rawalpindi to get higher education, but his financial position did not let him get admission in a college. He was provided shelter and food for some months by a charity organisation based in Gulzar-i-Quaid.

He started preparations for the 2009 annual examination in difficult circumstances when the charity organisation refused to support him any further. In a state of despair, the youngster left for his hometown to prepare for the examination. After receiving the schedule for the examination, he returned to Rawalpindi. However he faced lots of problems in finding shelter and food.

He went to his teacher, Tariq Mehmood, who taught him English at the charity organisation. Tariq Mehmood arranged a room for Sudheer Ahmed in an elementary school where he stayed without any light and fan during hot summer.

Finally his hard work paid off when on August 15 his teacher Tariq Mahmood informed him that he secured first position in humanities group.

Now Sudheer Ahmad has got admission at Punjab College of Commerce, Rawalpindi, in B.Com on a scholarship. But still, the boy is facing the problem of shelter. Currently he is living in a dilapidated room of the elementary school.

Tariq Mahmood said that the government should encourage such students. They are 'hidden diamonds' and should be supported so that they could prove themselves in future. The news

KMC topper urges efforts for progress in medical field
Swabi: Sobia Khan, who topped the MBBS final professional examination of the Khyber Medical College (KMC) and stood third in the Khyber Medical University, said it was need of the hour to make efforts for progress in the medical profession to meet international standards and better serve the nation.

Sobia, daughter of Prof Dr Imtiaz Hakeem, niece of known skin specialist Dr Irshad Hakeem and granddaughter of Haji Yaqoob Khan, a politician, hails from Maini village of Swabi district. It was first time in the history of Swabi that a girl from the area earned distinction in the medical field.

"I stood 1st in the subject of medicine at KMU and won a gold medal," she said. "September 2 was a golden day of my life when the MBBS result was declared," she added. She told media that she had planned to become a distinguished gynecologist and go to United Kingdom for specialisation.

"However I want to come back to my country and serve the womenfolk, who are suffering in our society," she added. She said sympathy, love and affection, politeness, pity, mercy and altruism must be the routine of doctors. The good response of a doctor to patients has always proved quite helpful in treatment of various diseases. We must lead a life which should enhance the credibility, esteem and repute of our alma mater."

"The subjects I am interested in are gynecology and medicine, of which the latter interests me more because of its diverse nature as it covers almost every disease known to human beings in today's world," she added. The news
