'Pvt medical colleges earned Rs 20m from prospectus'
Lahore: The Pakistan Medical Association (Centre) has pointed out that private medical colleges of the province have earned about Rs 20 million from the parents of medical students by selling the prospectus for admission to the MBBS & BDS programme.
PMA (Centre) President Dr Sarwar Chaudhry and Joint Secretary Dr Shahid Malik, in a statement on Sunday, condemned the act and termed it a collaboration of the University of Health Sciences administration and the private medical colleges.
They expressed these views after having a meeting with studentsí parents delegation, led by Mian Zahid, who apprised the PMA of the details.The PMA office-bearers further said that the 26 private medical colleges of the province had sold prospectus to about 3,000 students at the cost of Rs 2,500 each while the UHS administration, despite having the knowledge of the act, remained a silent spectator and allowed the private colleges to sell the prospectuses even before the admissions had started in public sector colleges. They said the move was in total violation of the instructions of the PMDC and the Punjab government. The PMA office-bearers also criticized the examination system of the UHS and said that the university administration was trying to appoint their favourites as examiners for various examinations and were trying to ruin the career of the students. They demanded Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to have a financial and administrative audit of the University of Health Sciences.
Girls college in school building rankles children
Lahore: Government Muhammadia Girls High School, Data Nagar, Badami Bagh, is a perfect example of the provincial governmentís negligence as well as its indifferent and lethargic attitude towards education because over the years it has failed to shift a college from the school premises.
The two-in-one institution has over 2,100 students in the school for whom there are only 20 rooms while the collegeís student body is around 200. The Government Inter College, Ravi Road, was temporarily camped on the school building some 27 years ago and since then it continued operating in the same building creating problems for the school management to ensure smooth functioning vis-‡-vis increasing enrolment.
The management of the Government Muhammadia Girls High School raised the issue on several occasions and involved high-ups of the department but to no avail. Recently, some innocent students and a female teacher of the school were manhandled by the college staff when owing to the paucity of space, the management tried to accommodate the students in the schoolís veranda.
The issue of manhandling should have been proved an eye-opener to those at the helm and measures should have been taken to immediately shift the college but as always the authorities remained unmoved.
The strength of schoolchildren, keeping in view the growing trend of education, is evident of the fact that the school management has worked hard and won trust of the locals.
A mere visit to the school is enough to feel the miserable conditions under which the students are quenching their thirst for knowledge and as to how the teachers are imparting knowledge.
However, owing to paucity of space, the school administration has no option but to accommodate eight classes in the courtyard and the corridors. If one ignores the prevailing moderate weather, it could easily be felt as to how the schoolchildren would be suffering in extreme hot weather and cold winter.
The courtyard-classrooms turn into playground during the break while desks, made of iron and wood, become a constant impediment for children during play.
The Government Muhammadia Girls High School is situated within provincial metropolis and still facing neglect over the years. One wonders students of how many schools would be suffering in remote rural areas of the province just because of neglect and lethargic attitude of the authorities.
Besides the school management, a number of locals of the area also raised the issue of shifting of the college out of the school and even wrote to the government but they did not receive a positive response except a few meetings. One such meeting was held in presence of Punjab Education Minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman a couple of months ago but it also went in vain as the problems faced by the school were not solved.
According to the government officials, since no government land is available in the nearby area, it is difficult to shift the college to some other place. However, sources claim that a number of places have been identified for shifting the college to rented building but it could not happen as the college management was reluctant to vacate the school.
Executive District Officer (Education) Lahore Dr Muhammad Arshad is still confident and, though he too is concerned over reluctance of college management to vacate the building, believes the college will be shifted soon. According to him, a number of places have been identified and the issue would be resolved soon.
