DUHS admission test in MBBS & BDS under fire

DUHS admission test under fire in Sindh Assembly
Karachi, July 01, 2008: The entry test for admissions in MBBS and BDS at the the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) came under fire in the Sindh Assembly on Monday.

Members of treasury benches, particularly Pakistan People's Party (PPP) ministers, warned that such acts would create crisis as results of intermediate classes were yet to be announced. Sindh Minister Rafiq Engineer raised the issue on the floor of the house and Health Minister Dr Saghir of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) assured the house that he had taken notice of the matter.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah ordered last week that the entry test should be held in August so that every student, securing 60 per cent of marks in the intermediate, could be able to sit in the test.

However, the DUHS held the entry test on Sunday in Karachi. Sindh Minister Rafiq Engineer said that notice must be taken of the act and also urged the Sindh governor to take notice of the matter.

Sindh Woman Minister Sassi Paloji told the house that a handicapped girl was not allowed in the entry test despite the fact that she had the prerequisite marks. Senior Minister Pir Mazharul Haq said that action must be taken against the act. The News

Hyderabad: The land mafia has encroached upon the plots of Sindh University located in Deh Railo and on the university's water supply tanks in the area.

The estate director of the university on Monday issued a letter to Jamshoro police station for the registration of an FIR against an alleged land grabber, Din Mohammad Chandio, and others.

In his letter to the SHO of Jamshoro, he said that Din Mohammad and others were the members of a land mafia and had encroached upon the university land and closed all links connected to water tanks.

He said after the overnight encroachment on the university land, the mafia had also closed the road and prevented the staff concerned from running the water supply system.

He said the encroachment had halted the water supply to huge population of the university, faculty and to the employees and students residing in the university hostels. The director in another letter to Hesco authorities has appealed to them to immediately disconnect the illegal electricity connections to the land grabbers.

University authorities said that land mafia, from time to time, had been encroaching upon the Sindh University plots and the university authorities had also taken up the matter at higher level.
