Karachi: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah Monday told Sindh Assembly that European Union committed a grant of 39 million Euro spread over a period of four years to assist Sindh Government's Education Sector Reform programme for which an agreement was signed on 22-11-2006.

Replying a question of Arif Mustafa Jatoi during question hour, the Chief Minister said first trance of Euro 9.50 million was expected to be released in financial year 2007-08.

However, due to deviation from the agreed parameters in respect of recruitment of teachers, the release was delayed as EU delegation visited Sindh on September 3, 2007 and expressed their concerns over recruitment of teachers and because of this the amount was not disbursed till August 29, 2008.

He said that on providing evidence regarding merit-based recruitment on Sept 8, 2008, the grant has been released by EU to the Federal Government on Oct 14,2008.

He said that first instalment of the amount was received only after the present government held out an assurance that teachers recruitment would be made on merit with all transparency.

He informed that this government has also received a portion of 300 million dollar grant of World Bank.

The Chief Minister said that Sindh Government has to recruit 20,000 teachers including 10,000 in the current year and it is because of our performance that we have received money from EU and WB.

Replying another question of same member, the Minister gave year-wise number of villages electrified during January 1 to December 31, 2008. He informed that in the year 2008, a total of 636 villages were electrified as against 870 in 2007 and 757 in 2006.

Postponement of KU meeting
Karachi: The Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) had recently demanded the postponement of the KU senate meeting, initially planned for December 24, ostensibly because college teachers were not represented. The demand, however, seems to have fizzled out after the move was opposed as being irrelevant, uncalled for and without any precedence, by a majority of deans, senior teachers, the officers' association and even the vice-chancellor (VC).

KU VC Prof. Pirzada Qasim minced no words and said that it was not possible to postpone the meeting because holding it on time was essential for the university. He expressed surprise at the KUTS' objection over the absence of the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) at the meeting. Prof. Qasim said that senate meetings have been held sans SPLA members in the past, but KUTS office-bearers, including the current president, had never objected to it. "The senate meeting can only be postponed if the chancellor is unable to attend it and wants to postpone it," he said.

Faculty of Science Dean Dr Shahana Urooj Kazmi also expressed surprise at the KUTS demand, and said that it lacked concrete reasoning. A reliable source at the university, while requesting anonymity said that the deans of Arts and Pharmacy were also on board in holding the meeting as per schedule.

Former Department of Pharmacology chairman, Dr Rafeeq Alam Khan, said that the KUTS demand was "politically motivated", and alleged that the current KUTS office-bearers were pressuring the VC in order to "get some lucrative deals for themselves". He claimed that they wanted to "make the hay while the sun shone" but the VC had "thankfully not capitulated" to this demand. "How can they claim to represent the KU teachers? They do not have any agenda except personal vendettas; they forget that moral uprightness should be the hallmark of a teacher," he maintained.

Former KUTS secretary Dr Shakeel Farooqui claimed that the current KUTS office-bearers had received the votes of only 175 teachers, out of a total of 600. "Last year, KUTS had been pressuring the administration to hold the meeting of the statutory bodies, and now they are demanding that the meeting be postponed. This is tantamount to throwing their own efforts down the drain. This step of theirs is incomprehensible. Such pressure tactics will not serve the teachers; on the contrary, it will provide an opportunity to the administration to hide its weaknesses," he remarked.

In a related development, the Sindh Teachers Forum (STF) has also expressed strong reservations at what they have referred to as the "unnecessary and politically immature demand" made by the KUTS. The STF has urged the VC to hold the senate meeting as planned.

Karachi University Officers Welfare Association (KUOWA) President Muhammad Tahir Khan, has also appealed to the VC to hold the meeting according to the schedule. He reminded the VC that at the last meeting, the Senate had decided to meet twice a year. Khan also pointed out that more than 3,000 non-teaching staff and officers have no representation in KU Senate or Syndicate.

In the meantime, the KUTS held an emergency meeting on Monday and passed one resolution each about the Senate meeting and the affairs of the Professional Development Centre (PDC). KUTS Secretary Dr Fayyaz Vaid said that the KUTS had demanded that the KU Senate meeting be postponed till the completion of the SPLA election process. "If the KU administration fails to heed to our demand we will protest from all possible forums available to us," Dr Vaid said.

The KUTS also expressed strong reservations on the appointment of Dr Shakeel Farooqui as the PDC coordinator.

Neurological degradation research
Karachi: University of Karachi (KU) Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof. Pirzada Qasim has reiterated his aim to establish a state-of-the-art facility in the university to research degenerative diseases caused by the degradation of the neurological functions of the brain.

Qasim, a neurological physiologist by training, revealed his plan after the conclusion of the inaugural session of the "First National Patch Clamp Workshop: The Nobel Prize ˝winning Technique", which was held at the auditorium of the KU International Centre for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS) on Monday.

The workshop is jointly organised by Dr Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research (PCMD), KU, and COMSTECH under the supervision of Prof Dr Kaneez Fatima Shad, who is an expert in patch clamp techniques. Renowned patch clamp experts, Dr Andrew J Moorhouse from Australia, Prof Dr Frances A. Edwards from University College of London (UCL), UK, and Prof Dr Kaneez Fatima Shad from PCMD, are training aspiring research scientists from Karach and other cities of Pakistan.

Qasim explained that a degenerative disease is one in which the function or structure of the affected tissues or organs will progressively deteriorate over time, whether due to normal bodily wear or lifestyle choices, such as exercise or eating habits. "The bank will acquire the brains of dead people with degenerative diseases, and whose bodies remain unclaimed. We will preserve such human brain specimens in the bank, and research will be conducted by the eminent neurologists to find out the cure for the brain diseases," he added.

Earlier, speaking to the scientists, Qasim said that while a laboratory could have the best available equipment and facilities, "real research" emanated from the research environment. He welcomed some KU alumni who have joined PCMD, and hoped others who have left the country will follow suit.

Edwards explained that the patch clamp technique is a laboratory technique in electrophysiology which allows the study of single or multiple ion channels in cells. Moorhouse offered insight into the patch clamp technique.

Former HEC Chairman Prof Atta˝ur-Rahman, Faculty of Science Dean Dr Shahana Urooj Kazmi, and ICCBS Director Dr Iqbal Chaudhary also spoke on the occasion. The news
