University of Health Sciences sacked employees

Minister warns of resignation for UHS employees
Lahore, Aug 12: Punjab Labour Minister Ashraf Khan Sohna said Wednesday that he would tender his resignation if the sacked employees of the University of Health Sciences (UHS) were not restored and regularized.

He was addressing a ceremony which was organized at auditorium of Allama Iqbal Medical College, Lahore, to honor two deceased and 6 injured members of All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA). The victims met the fate during their protest in front of the Governor's House on May 25.

Ashraf Sohna said that, soon after flood relief activities and rehabilitation of flood victims, he would tender his resignation and participate in the protest along with UHS employees, if they were not regularized in view of the Punjab government's decision of regularizing all grade 1 to 15 employees in the government departments/institutions and autonomous institutions in the province. 'It is a matter of my honor to help restore the sacked UHS employees,' he asserted.

He believed that PML-N senior leader and Senator Ishaq Dar, who is also Chairman of Board of Governors of the UHS, was resisting the regularization of the employees. He said that though the CM had earlier given assurance to sympathetically consider the issue, Ishaq Dar not only wanted the CM) but also him (Sohna) to remain silent on the issue. 'Ishaq Dar, who has spent $1.8 million on the marriage of his son in Dubai recently, would never be able to experience the plight of poor UHS employees and their families,' he said.

He also vowed to raise the issue of prolonged illegal stint of incumbent Vice Chancellor of UHS in the Punjab Assembly.

MNA Naseer Bhutta also gave the assurance to bring the matter in the notice of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. The sacked regretted that Minister for Food Chaudhry Abdul Ghafoor, who had been assigned to submit a report regarding the issue of regularization of UHS employees within four days as per directions of the chief minister, had also failed to do his job in this regard. After postponing their protests several times on the assurances of the government authorities, the sacked UHS employees announced to resume their protest in front of the PA on August 14 which would continue until the regularization of their jobs.
