Students transport problem in twin cities

Students facing transport problem in Rawalpindi Islamabad
Islamabad, Oct 2: Student community in the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi are facing transport problem, as there are hundreds of educational institutions here but transport arrangement for thousands of students is insufficient.

Though many institutions have their own arrangement for the pick and drop of their students, yet it is not sufficient to facilitate the entire community.

A large number of students coming from out of city reach their respective schools and colleges through private transport, the drivers and conductors of which usually misbehave with them.

Many students shared their sufferings and rude behaviour of the transporters.

A student, Salman, said the school/college buses ply only on specific routes and he has to use local transport to reach his college. "This is one of the major problems for all those who come from outstation," he said.

Students complained that majority of local transporters do not stop their buses on stops where they are waiting.

Mahmud Khan, a college student, said due to financial problems, he couldn't pay full fare of the bus, while transporters do not allow them the student concession.

Sana Ali, another student, said particularly girl students have to wait for a long time to find a seat due to which they often reach their college late. She demanded the concerned authorities to provide sufficient buses for colleges, especially women's colleges. The news

Court to be moved against Farah Dogar's jacked-up marks
Islamabad: The Education Ministry has decided to challenge the jacked-up marks of Farah Hameed Dogar, daughter of ex-chief justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar, in the Supreme Court, the National Assembly Standing Committee on Education was told by the ministry on Wednesday.

The committee was also told by the ministry that all the teachers involved in the infamous case of re-assessment had been blacklisted by the Education Ministry and soon would be issued show cause notices for their termination from service.

Committee Chairman Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali said that the committee recommended that the former chairman Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) Commodore Shamshad should be arrested through Interpol and brought back to Pakistan and should be tried for committing such a crime that had affected tens of thousands of students.

He said, "When the Education Ministry stated that there were no rules of re-assessment in the board, the verdict of Islamabad High Court passed by PCO judges was of no worth and challenging it in the supreme court was the most appropriate action available."

He said that he formulated a sub-committee headed by Memoona Hashmi to help the Education Ministry in filing its case in the Supreme Court to undo the jacked-up marks of Farrah Hameed Dogar. He said that the Education Ministry in its report mentioned that there were no rules of re-assessment of papers in the education system in Pakistan and allowing such a relaxation would open a Pindora's box.

He said that the committee also took serious note on denial of admission by Islamic International Medical College to a student who secured 787 marks while the privileged daughter was given admission who was first denied for securing less than 60 per cent marks and was later admitted after illegal re-assessment of papers.

"We will have to set example", said Abid Sher Ali adding: "Otherwise the whole education system would collapsed."

He mentioned that the ex-chairman FBISE had been proved guilty in the inquiry report submitted by the Education Ministry but he was absconding abroad but the committee would press the government to arrange his homecoming so that the major culprit should be punished to set examples.
