Lahore, Oct 05: Chairman, Evacuee Trust Property Board, Asif Hashmi has alleged

demanding money from him for giving a true copy of the notification
regarding fake degree of PML-N MANA, Malik Riaz whose degree has been
challenged in the court by Mr Hashmi.
Talking to reporters in his
office on Friday, Asif Hashmi said that University of AJK issued a
notification, dated 22nd of September 2010, declaring graduation degree
of his rival candidate Malik Riaz as fake, but the registrar was
demanding bribe for issuing an attested copy of the document to him.
further alleged that University administration issued a fake degree to
Malik Riaz by getting money and now they were seeking bribe for issuance
of an attested copy of the said notification. Hashmi said he had filed a
disqualification case against Malik Riaz, and had every right to have
access to true copy of the official notification declaring BA degree of
his rival candidate as fake.
He said it was strange that a person
posted at responsible position in a University was seeking bribe from a
person of the status of a federal minister for a genuine work.

Peshawar: The lawmakers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly on Friday
took the government to task for not taking notice of shortage of
teaching staff in technical educational institutions which, they said,
were on the verge of collapse.

students at stake.

Provincial Minister for Technical Education and Industries Mehmood Zaib
Khan told the house that around 300 posts of lecturers were lying vacant
in technical educational institutions across the province.
Khan said that his department had sanctioned around 300 posts of
lecturers in various technical educational institutions and asked the
Public Service Commission (PSC) to fill it. However, he said, the PSC
was yet to conduct tests and interviews to fill the sectioned posts.
Speaker Kiramatullah Khan Chagharmatti, who was chairing the session,
observed that the number of the PCS members had already been increased

vacant posts in the technical colleges should be filled immediately," he

department concerned stated that due to worsening law and order
situation in Hangu the number of students had sharply dropped forcing
the administration to close the institution.
However, the mover
expressed dissatisfaction over the reply of the department concerned,
saying if there was no staff member in the institution then how students
could come and for what. "There are many primary and high schools
adjacent to the closed technical college which are smoothly functioning
in the area then why the college has been closed," he asked.
Similarly, woman MPA Ms Musarrat Shafi raised the same issue concerning
her native district Kohat. She had sought the department's reply about
the shortage of staff in the upgraded Government College of Technology,
The industry and technical education department, in its
reply, said that the process for appointment of necessary staff had been
started. Through a written reply, the department said that it had
