Intermediate admission date at Karachi Colleges extended

Class XI placement date extended
Karachi, Aug 27, 2008: The admission committee, set up under the Centralized Admission Policy (CAP) for placement of Matric students in the city's government colleges, has extended the last date for the submission of the placement forms by two days. A member of the CAP committee said on Tuesday that the authorized bank branches would now accept the forms till Aug 28.

He said that the branches would also continue to issue the placement forms till the same date.

Around 87,000 forms have already been issued by the 42 authorized branches across the city. More than 67,000 forms were submitted by candidates till Monday evening.

Meanwhile, former director of colleges Prof Haroon Raheed has called for an inquiry into the resignation of human resource director in the directorate-general (colleges), Prof Deedar Murtaza, from the office of secretary-cum-member of the CAP committee.

Prof Murtaza's resignation at a time when the committee had a gigantic job to accomplish had raised many questions which ought to be answered, he said, pointing out that it was beyond anyone's comprehension that more than 30 people had been accommodated in the admission committee instead of a maximum of 15 as envisaged in the policy.

Inquiry sought into irregularities of SAU VC
Hyderabad: Representatives of the Forum for the Restoration of Responsible Governance in Universities and Restoration of Academic Standards in Sindh here on Tuesday demanded the removal of the vice-chancellor of the Sindh Agriculture University (SAU), Tandojam, and the constitution of a high-level inquiry committee to probe into the administrative and financial irregularities.

Forum chairman and former SAU professor Amir Ali Qadri, along with Professor Badar Soomro, Zamir Khan, Yaqoob Chandio and others made this demand while addressing a news conference at the Hyderabad Press Club.

They accused SAU VC Dr Bashir Ahmed Shaikh of irregularities and poor performance of the university. They said it was not only at the SAU that Dr Shaikh came out as a failure. Prior to this, they claimed, he remained totally unsuccessful at the Shah Latif University, Khairpur, and was also ousted from the Pakistan Science Foundation, Islamabad.

They said it was a shameful situation that the Higher Education Commission had put the SAU at the bottom as it was ranked 4th out of the four agriculture universities in the country during the tenure of Dr Shaikh. They claimed that family members and relatives were being forwarded in appointments and more than 200 appointments had been allowed on the basis of nepotism and favouritism and sons, daughters and relatives of his sycophants were appointed.

They said neither any research work was being carried out in the university nor any equipment had been provided to its laboratories. They said a huge amount was transferred to the Tandojam branch of the UBL to create difficulties for staff and the students despite the fact that an HBL branch already existed in the campus. They added that over Rs 200 million had been sanctioned directly or indirectly to Dr Saghir Shaikh, officially identified as a nephew but was actually the elder son of Dr Bashir Shaikh.

They demanded that the salary of employees should be released without any further delay and a high-level committee should be formed to probe into the irregularities. Representation of the forum should also be allowed in the committee, they added.

Speaking on the occasion, Professor Badar Soomro demanded that all the retired government employees who were working in various universities in Sindh should be removed from their posts immediately. The News
