List of students given laptops in Punjab

'List of students given laptop to be displayed on website'
Lahore, Apr 09: PML-N leader Senator Pervaiz Rashid has said that transparency and merit has been ensured in the purchase and distribution of laptops in accordance with the policy of the Punjab government.

Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, Pervaiz Rashid, who was flanked by Special Assistant to Chief Minister Zaeem Qadri and Higher Education Secretary Dr Ijaz Munir, said that laptops were being given to students in recognition of their talent so that they could play their due role in the development of the country after acquiring the latest knowledge.

He further said the Punjab government had completed all the formalities in the procurement of laptops and the lowest bidding firm was selected for their purchase through an open competition.

He said the total cost of a laptop was Rs37,700, which included 15 months warranty, after-sale service, bag, storage expenses and airfare, adding that if these charges were excluded, the price of a laptop came down to Rs31,000.

He said the lists of the students who had been given laptops would also be placed on the website along with serial number of the laptop. While referring to the complaints about two candidates who managed to get laptops in Bahawalpur, he said the matter was investigated, one was an official of Rescue 1122 and the other was an employee of the Punjab Police.

He said both the officials had been dismissed from service due to submitting wrong affidavits and their laptops had been cancelled.

Senator Pervaiz Rashid said 85,000 laptops had been received so far out of which 63,690 had been distributed in 28 districts whereas the process of distribution of laptops would soon start in the remaining eight districts. He disclosed that 25,000 more laptops would be received by the department within a week.

3,482 laptops distributed among GCU students
Lahore: A ceremony was held at the Government College University (GCU) on Tuesday to distribute laptops among 3,482 students under the Punjab government's e-Youth Initiative.

PML-N MNA and Old Ravian Hamza Shahbaz Sharif was the chief guest while GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Muhammad Khaleequr Rahman, faculty members and a large number of students and their parents attended.

Addressing the ceremony, Hamza Shahbaz said Pakistan would not have been facing loadshedding, price hike and unemployment had a huge amount of $10 billion not been wasted on the so-called war on terror and instead spent on education of youths.

He said students of today were leaders of the future and they should keep in mind that after mistakes of 64 years there was no option but to win. He said the distribution of 125,000 laptops on pure merit was not a scheme but a vision to empower the youth to change the destiny of Pakistan.

He said he was just 19 when his political rivals put him behind the bars. "That was time when I resolved to bring about a meaningful change in lives of the voiceless masses of Pakistan," he said.Hamza asked colleges and universities students to join hands with him to serve the masses by upgrading education, health and civic facilities in remote areas of the province.

Students stage demo for laptops
Lahore: Dozens of Punjab University (PU) students on Thursday protested against the Punjab government and demanded laptops for students enrolled in afternoon and evening programmes. PU chapter Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) had organised the protest rally which started from Institute of Education and Research (IER) and culminated at Campus Bridge where the protestors staged a sit-in. The protest demo also caused traffic mess on Canal Road and other adjacent roads for quite some time. The protestors expressed strong resentment, saying students of both (evening and afternoon) programmes were being ignored in Punjab government's ongoing laptop scheme. They demanded change in criteria, saying laptops should be given to students who got 50 percent marks under annual exam system.

Year-long wait for class 5, 8 re-exam
Lahore: Hundreds of students who could not qualify Class-5 and Class-8 Annual Examination 2012, conducted by the Punjab Examination Commission (PEC), will have to wait for one whole year to re-sit in the exams and qualify the same as the commission does not offer supplementary examination.

The examination commission does not offer any chance to the candidates to improve their results if they want to repeat the exam to raise their grades and they have to wait for the next annual examination.

It is pertinent to mention here that the PEC, established few years back, is mandated by the Punjab government to conduct Grade-V and Grade-VIII examination on a uniform basis across the province.

Apart from the examination commission, eight Boards of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISEs) across the province conduct matriculation (Class-IX & X) and Intermediate (Class-XI & XII) examinations. The BISEs offer a chance to students to pass the exam or improve their grades, if they need so, in supplementary exams.

It is also important to mention here that unlike the BISEs, the Punjab Examination Commission examines over 2 million students almost every year. It has been facing criticism for poor conduct of exams ever since its inception. Its performance can also be gauged from the fact that some years back, the Punjab government had to promote all the candidates who appeared in Class-V and Class-VIII exams regardless of their results when the commission failed to ensure transparency in conducting exams.

Almost every year, the examination commission qualifies thousands of students with grace marks who are promoted to next classes. This year too hundreds of students, if not thousands, have been passed with a star (*).

This year, the results of Grade-V and Grade-VIII examinations 2012 were announced on March 31 but owing to sheer mismanagement on part of the commission as well as the EDOs Education across the province thousands of students had failed to know their result the same day.

The stakeholders, especially parents of the students, have demanded the Punjab chief minister take notice of mismanagement on the part of the provincial examination commission and direct it to hold supplementary exams for the students so that their time might not be wasted.

YDA opposes PU's medical college plan
Lahore: The Young Doctors Association (YDA) criticized Punjab University's plan to set up its constituent medical college on self-finance scheme.

In a press release here on Wednesday, the YDA office-bearers Dr Rana Sohail, Dr Salman Kazmi, Dr Talha Sherwani, Dr Ghulam Qasim, Dr Murtaza Bloch, Dr Khawar Khan, Dr Shahid Dreshik, Dr Waqas Gondal, Dr Shehzad, Dr Asim, Dr Shams, Dr Azhar and Dr Amjad said setting up of a medical college at PU was a violation of Chief Minister Punjab's merit policy and article 25-A of the constitution of Pakistan.

They said that medical education was a very profitable business in Pakistan, which provoked the PU administration to make a plan of making profit after establishing a new college as their constituent college and earn Rs 0.55 million per student per year in the name of fee.

They said that if the Punjab University wanted to establish a constituent medical college, they must do it on open merit basis so that deserving students could get admission. The news

PU Syndicate demands anti-IJT operation in hostels
Lahore: Members of the Punjab University Syndicate and the Academic Staff Association (ASA) on Saturday condemned the conspiracy of character assassination of senior teachers through fake orders and demanded the Punjab government to operate in PU hostels against the Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT), besides setting up a police checkpost there to maintain law and order.

They were addressing a press conference at the PU Executive Club, which was attended by syndicate members, including Professor Dr Shaukat Ali and Javed Sami, and ASA executive members, including President Dr Amir Sarwar.

Speaking on the occasion Amir Sarwar said that a specific political group, after the defeat in syndicate and ASA polls, had started targeting two senior teachers Prof Dr Shaukat Ali and Javed Sami.

He said that union member Munir Awan had lodged a fake complaint of harassment with the Model Town Police Station against Prof Dr Shaukat Ali and tried to get a case registered against him. Prof Shaukat Ali said that a specific political group had made the Punjab University hostage as it had representation in the elected bodies of the university.

He said that the modus operandi of the group was that it used to politically pressurise the university administration to get decisions in their favour.

On the contrary, the present administration had started to make decisions on merit, upon which the political group started to "make noise", he added.

Prof Shaukat was of the view that the police had declared the incident of harassment, described by Munir, as fabricated. He said that the court was moved against the teachers, which also cancelled their (teachers') arrest warrants that had been issued earlier. Javed Sami said that the attempt of using court orders through conspiracy was made by the group that had been involved in "negative activities" on campus.

He was of the view that two FIRs had been registered against Munir Awan on harassing teachers and calling them names. Sami said that Munir was terminated from services 18 months ago, but he still visited the university frequently and "threatens teachers and employees".

PU ASA and Syndicate members demanded the government take action against the group. They also requested Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to take notice of the campaign of character assassination of teachers. Daily times

'CPSP producing 90pc specialists in country'
Lahore: College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan (CPSP) President Prof Zafarullah Chaudhry has said that the General Medical Council (GMC) recognizes the college's FCPS degree among nine top medical qualifications of the world.

He was speaking at a seminar on "Assistance for Improvement of Health System: CPSP's Importance and Role" organized in connection with the CPSP's Golden Jubilee Year 2012 by the Mir Khalil-ur-Rahman Memorial Society (MKRMS) at a local hotel here on Thursday.

Paying tribute to CPSP founder Lt Gen WA Burki, Zafarullah said the college had been producing over 90 percent of specialists in Pakistan as over 19,000 out of total 23,000 specialists in the country were its fellows. Since its inception in 1962, he said, the CPSP had taken its vision forward by providing an apparatus to produce specialists and promote specialist practice with a view to fulfilling the specialist healthcare needs of the country. He said the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), established 19 days after the establishment of CPSP in 1962, was reduced to a mere regulatory body due to the government's interference in its matters. Similarly, he said, the Pakistan Medical Research Council's (PMRC) role was restricted to research.

While on the other hand, Zafarullah said the CPSP had risen to the challenge of producing specialists through structured training and credible examination system without government assistance or grants to meet its expenditures. Besides, he said, the CPSP was second biggest postgraduate medical institution in the world by offering postgraduate qualifications in 64 specialties behind only Canada's postgraduate medical institution offering postgraduate courses in 68 disciplines. He said the college's qualifications were widely recognized in the US, UK, Europe and Arab countries, adding that all 100 percent CPSP's fellows returned back and served the people in the country.

The CPSP president said that the college's 50th anniversary celebrations would commence with events at the CPSP provincial centre, Lahore, from April 12 to 14, May 3 to 5 in Islamabad, CPSP centre in Peshawar in June, one day's event in Balochistan and culminating celebrations by holding events at CPSP Karachi headquarter in November.

Prof Dr Shoaib Shafi, Vice-President CPSP, said the CPSP's maximum number of fellows and trainees were registered in specialty of medicine. As maximum deaths of patients occurred in the first 48 hours, he said, the CPSP had instituted discipline of emergency medicine, which had been adopted in all the developed countries of the world. However, he regretted that sub-specialty of emergency medicine had not been started in any public sector hospital so far, while the same had been adopted in private hospitals. He also lamented the government's role of not supporting the CPSP in any way.

Prof Dr Khalid Masood Gondal, Vice-President and Regional Director Lahore Centre, termed the college a success story, saying that it had been providing structured training to over 16,000 trainees. He said that CPSP fellows were treated with equal dignity and respect in Saudi Arabia as those from UK, USA, Canada, etc.

Prof Dr Mahmood Ayaz said the CPSP had been successfully running the Advance Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) courses to prevent deaths from trauma and cardiac emergencies. In connection with 50 year celebrations, he said, the CPSP would organise scientific courses, live surgical skills workshops while 23 scientific papers would be presented during the scientific sessions.

Prof Dr Shireen Bhutta, Treasurer of the CPSP, said the college had been generating its own resources and running all its system and development expenditures without government's assistance. She said the CPSP had carried out massive development work and established 12 centres all over the country in order to impart training to the trainees close to their home districts.

Prof Dr Muhammad Amjad, Controller of Examinations CPSP, said the college had maintained efficiency and transparency in its examinations, adding that none of the examinations had been postponed due to law and order situation despite the fact that it had been conducting over 120 examinations in a year.

Maj Gen Prof Dr Salman Ali said specialists in the army were rendering services to the soldiers at Siachen or even in most difficult terrains of the world.

Prof Dr Abdul Sattar Memon, Vice-President CPSP, said the CPSP had signed an MoU with the UK to provide training to the College's fellows on the same pay package and they would then return to serve the country.

Prof Dr Tariq Mahmood Khan, Prof Dr Rizwan Azmi, Prof Dr Rakhshanda Rehman, Prof Dr Asghar Butt, Prof Dr Rizwana Chaudhry, Prof Dr Aamer Zaman, Prof Dr Hamid Butt, Prof Dr Riaz Warraich, Prof Dr Tahir Masood, Prof Dr Manzoor Ahmad and Prof Dr Muhammad Tayyab also spoke while MKRMS Chairman Wasif Nagi conducted the seminar.
