University teachers slam HEC for 'interference'

LAHORE, Sep 13: Dr Mumtaz Ahmad Salik, president of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Associations (FAPUASA), said on Wednesday that the Higher Education Commission's (HEC) interference and bad policies were spoiling the standard of education of universities.

He told a press conference at Punjab University that public universities should be free of 'military influence' and that an 'outsider' should not be allowed to become the vice chancellor (VC) of Punjab University. He also said a person with a PhD should be made the VC.

He said HEC's policies were hindering the improvement of teachers and that FAPUASA would protest if authorities did not consider its demands and changed their policies. He said FAPUSA would start protesting from next week by boycotting classes for two hours twice a week. He said, "We demand the government listens to us or it will be responsible for the education upheaval at universities during the boycotts."

He also said FAPUASA demanded promotions for teachers, reviving the criteria for recruiting assistant professors, canceling the Balochistan University Ordinance, appointing senior university teachers as vice chancellors, providing PhD facilities to university teachers on priority and recognizing quality research journals.
