Laptop distribution at PU
Lahore: Chief Justice (CJ) Umar Ata Bandial of the Lahore High Court (LHC) disposed of a petition challenging the use of Punjab University's (PU) funds for the laptop distribution ceremony after the City District Government Lahore (CDGL) paid the amount spent to the university.

The laptop distribution ceremony was held in PU on March 23, with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif being the chief guest of the event.

The PU's counsel on Wednesday informed the court that an amount worth Rs 8.7 million had been given to the university as educational funds. A petition in this regard had been filed by a local, Chaudhry Nazir Ahmad, in which he had challenged the use of university funds for the laptop distribution ceremony. Earlier, the CJ had observed that students' funds could not be used for political motives.

A law officer had already informed that the Punjab government had announced to bear expenses of the ceremony and that the CDGL will reimburse the expenses to the university.

The petitioner's counsel, Aftab Bajwa, submitted that the PU administration had arranged a ceremony for the distribution of laptops among students on March 23 at PU Quaid-e-Azam Campus. He said that for this function, the VC sanctioned a supplementary grant of Rs 30 million. He alleged that the VC made this decision without permission of the PU Syndicate and, as such, it was an illegal decision. He alleged that the VC arranged the function to oblige Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif by inviting them as chief guests. He submitted that banners had been displayed in the university along with the photographs of Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif, which showed the mala fide intentions of the VC. The counsel also requested the court to order departmental action against the responsible.

Bajwa also said that the CDGL could not foot the bill, as it was not authorised to use its funds for a function for political projection of a particular party. He said the PML-N leaders delivered political speeches at the laptop distribution ceremony, adding that laptops could be distributed among students by the university itself "without staging a political drama".

HEC extensions questioned
Islamabad: Establishment Division has taken notice of extensions of Executive Director (ED) Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Advisor HRD and instructed to provide a copy of the summery to assure that prime minister's approval was obtained for the appointment, in the capacity of controlling authority.

According to a document available with Dawn, a letter signed by section officer (E-6) of Establishment Division, Ejaz Ahmad, has been sent to Chairman HEC.

It has been further informed that approval of the prime minister is required for the completion of record in Establishment Division.

It is worth mentioning that HEC, on August 27 extended the contracts of ED Dr Sohail Naqvi for another four years and Advisor HRD Prof Dr Riaz Hussain Qureshi's contract was extended for another one year.

Secretary Ministry of Science and Technology Akhlaq Ahmed Tarar had already (in current month) sent a letter to establishment division in which he showed his concerns over HEC's decision to include him in Selection Board and asked that appointments in Management Position Scale (MPs Scale) can only be done by the PM but HEC has been doing appointments without getting approval of PM.On the other hand, management of HEC continued the process of appointments and in the end extended the contracts of officers.

An officer of HEC requesting not to be identified said: "Although management of HEC has extended the contracts of officers but it will become a matter of embarrassment for them because extensions were done in violation of rules," he said.

"Rules clearly say that it is the prerogative of the PM to appoint or give extension to officers of MP scale but management of HEC did not bother to seek permission," he said.

Director General Human Resource Department of HEC, Awais Ahmed said that according to section 6 of the recruitment rules, commission was competent to recruit officers of any scale including MP scale officers.

"Rules were made about 10 years ago, so the officer of establishment division who has sent the letter might be unaware of the rules. I will clarify and the issue will be addressed," he said. Dawn
