Medical colleges self-finance scheme abolished

Lahore, June 12, 2008: Punjab Chief Minister, Mian Shahbaz Sharif has said that government has abolished self-finance scheme in medical colleges so that admission and educational facilities could be provided only to intelligent and deserving students.

He was talking to senior journalists of print and electronic media at the Chief Minister's Secretariat here on Wednesday. The Chief Minister said that provision of healthcare, education and a peaceful atmosphere was the prime responsibility of a govt and the present leadership has tried to fulfil this obligation by devising an effective plan for upholding merit in admission and education in professional colleges.

He said that professional institutions were destroyed by introducing self-finance scheme in violation of merit. He said that rejecting an eligible candidate simply on the basis of his poor credential, giving preference to an undeserving person with money was a grave social injustice. He said that the government would refrain from adopting a lavish style. He said that the setting up of coalition governments at the centre and the provincial level was a unique event in national history which had been necessitated by the result of the mandate of the people against dictatorship in the general elections of Feb 18.

"This is a very good initiative... especially considering the fact that the majority of self-finance students still dont study well enough during MBBS and BDS sessions and hence become inexperienced doctors, which obviously leads to casualties and mishaps among the patients. Well done Mr. Shahbaz Sharif! "

"It is No-doubt a very good step but its notification is still not been processed. Until it is not processed it is just a wada or promise."
