Punjab Vocational Training Council chairman resignation

Employees forced PVTC chairman to resign
Lahore, Oct 10: Hundreds of employees of the Punjab Vocational Training Council (PVTC) allegedly forced entry into office of the PVTC chairman on Friday and made him sign his resignation.

According to sources, PVTC Chairman Yousaf Kamal was in his office on Friday when hundreds of employees entered his office and allegedly pressurized him to sign the resignation letter which he did in order to avoid any violence. They added the senior officer was even manhandled by some of the angry employees.

They said the employees took the "bold step" to make him sign the resignation as the chairman had initiated inquiries against a number of employees while many others were sacked in recent past on charges of wrongdoings and corruption.

However, according to a press release issued on PVTC letterhead bearing signature of unidentified official on Friday stated, "the PVTC chairman had to resign from his office today, after a strong protest demonstration staged by hundreds of employees of PVTC and its subsidiary 146 Vocational Training Institutes (VTIs) gathered at his office to demonstrate against his oppressive policies and unjust attitude".

The copy of "resignation" letter addressed to the Punjab chief minister was also issued to The News which states, "The undersigned was appointed as Chairman Punjab Vocational Training Council during December 2008. Due to some personal reasons, I cannot continue to work as the PVTC chairman. Kindly accept my resignation with immediate effect".

When contacted, Yousaf Kamal said he was forced to sign the resignation, adding the government should take serious action against the elements involved in Friday's incident. The news

Teachers the ambassadors of conscience
Lahore: Teachers must change their attitude and command respect through their commitment and professional competence instead of pleading before the government or the masses for the lost respect, said Prof Mumtaz Akhtar, Institute of Education and Research director, Punjab University, at a World Teachers' Day function here on Thursday. The function was organised by the Pakistan Education Watch (PEW) at institute's hall.

Ms Akhtar said that teachers had lost their role as real mentors and guides for their students. She said most of the teachers went to classes to consume the duty time instead of imparting good quality education to learners. She said many teachers were working for a number of academies to make money which had affected their performance.

PEW chairperson Shaheen Attiqueur Rehman said the Pakistani nation could progress and alleviate poverty only after educating the whole nation. She said Bangladesh was a poorer country than Pakistan but it had ensured a 100 per cent enrolment in its schools. In Pakistan, almost 30 per cent of the population was still out of school and in Punjab alone there were over 30 million illiterates.

She said a real teacher inculcated love of learning among his or her pupils and in this way they became a great entity and continue to live on in the heart of learners. She said teachers were the ambassadors of conscience and vision.

Former Punjab DPI (colleges) Dr Shaukat Ali said teachers lost respect in the last three decades, when the private sector emerged and the elite class started sending their children to those schools. Consequently, the government's attention towards public schools started receding that led to even stopping of regular grants for libraries, laboratories and upkeep of campuses.

He said this society's cold shoulder towards the public sector education also discouraged teachers. He said that it was a high time to bring about a social change in society so that teachers could also regain their lost glory. Dawn
