KEMU exam controller resigned against VCs interference
Lahore: The Controller of Examinations of King Edward Medical University (KEMU), Lahore, has been forced to resign for refusing to accept the varsity's vice-chancellor's alleged interference in affairs of the examination branch.

The Controller of Examinations, Prof Dr Khalid Aziz, Professor of Forensic Medicine, tendered his resignation citing "person reasons/commitments" on November 11 after being asked to resign by the VC. He handed over the charge to deputy controller examinations (secrecy). However, Prof Dr Imtiaz Akhtar Bajwa, Professor of Urology, who recently joined the KEMU from the Children's Hospital, is expected to be appointed as the controller.

Prof Khalid Aziz, who had taken the charge on May 5 is the second casualty under the current administration of KEMU after former controller of examinations, Prof Dr Shabbir Bhatti, Professor of Pharmacology, along with additional controller of examinations Dr Asif Hashmi resigned for their respective posts allegedly due to differences with the VC over similar reasons.

Prof Shabbir Bhatti later went on to leave the university on a two-year LPR (Leave Prior Retirement) and joined a private medical college whereas Dr Asif Hashmi who was replaced by Col (retd) Mohiyuddin, had earlier also resigned from the post of controller of examinations of the University of Health Sciences (UHS) for resisting the VC's alleged influence in affairs of the examination branch.

Sources in KEMU informed that Prof Khalid Aziz had resigned from the post due to increasing interference of the VC in the examination branch as he had been signing date sheets of all examinations. However, sources said the VC unilaterally issued a date (November 16, 2009) for entrance test for admissions to 13 postgraduate diplomas without the permission of the Examination Department or even bringing this into the notice of the controller. As Prof Khalid Aziz objected to this act, the VC asked him to resign.

Besides, it is also learnt that Prof Muhammad Akram, Professor of Physiology, also refused to make separate question papers for MS and MD due to absence of proper curriculum of these courses.

Sources alleged that the KEMU VC was trying to dictate his own terms to the Examination Department without following rules and regulations of the varsity. Besides, they said the KEMU administration had also failed to notify new policy on internal assessment system. "The KEMU has neither revised nor abolished the internal assessment system despite promising students, who had been protesting over not displaying the criteria of internal assessment," the sources added. They said the VC had always misbehaved with the faculty, staff, students, old Kemcolians, and media alike for questioning his wrong decisions denting the image of the university.

Senior KEMU faculty members also alleged that the Examination Department had always been influenced by the current as well as first VC of this university for their vested interests. They said that the Punjab government's policy of carrying on with vice-chancellors, appointed only to look after the assignment, had seriously hampered the progress of the university as the country's premier medical educational institution.

When contacted, Prof Khalid Aziz said that he resigned because he had refused to obey 'illegal orders' of the VC. He said that the VC, who had just been appointed to look after the assignment, had destroyed the institution due to his wrong policies and autocratic attitude.

"No senior professor likes to work with him," he said and added that no controller of examinations was expected to go along with him in future as well. "We, the old Kemcolians, work for the uplift of our alma mater, but can't become a part of attempts to destroy the reputation of the university," he said, adding that the VC deemed university as his personal property.

It may be mentioned that, in a short history of KEMU since its commission in 2005, Prof Khalid Aziz was the fourth Controller because Abdul Saboor and Col (retd) Masood had also served as the controller of examinations of the varsity. Besides, the KEMU administration also avoided notifying the change of controller of examinations, one of the most important and high profile shuffle in any university, for information of all concerned through media. Earlier, the KEMU had also tried its utmost to conceal replacement of Prof Dr Shabbir Bhatti and Dr Asif Hashmi as it appeared in The News one month after this 'clandestine move'.

When contacted on his mobile phone, KEMU Vice Chancellor Prof Zafarullah Khan behaved in an extremely uncivilized manner as he hung up the phone immediately after introduction by this correspondent. The Registrar of KEMU, Prof Dr Mahmood Shaukat, however, confirmed that the controller of examinations, Prof Khalid Aziz, had resigned and Prof Imtiaz Akhtar Bajwa would be appointed as the new controller.
