PU VC steps down after eight years

LAHORE, Sept 22: Punjab University (PU) vice chancellor (VC) Lt Gen (r) Arshad Mehmood will leave the PU today (Saturday) after spending eight years in office.

He will be replaced by acting VC Prof Muhammad Arif Butt. On Friday, Mehmood spent his last day at the campus. A large number of PU employees bade him farewell at a party. The VC announced Rs 3,000 and Rs 2,000 special allowances for PU grade one to five and grade six to 17 employees respectively as a token of appreciation. He also announced a Rs 1,000 allowance for PU drivers and conductors from the university's special funds.

A lobby of teachers criticised the package, saying the Higher Education Commission had already cut the grants for the university over the plagiarism issue. Islami Jamiat Talaba members distributed pamphlets after Friday prayers, levelling several allegations on the VC. "The VC ran the university like an army institution," the pamphlets read.

PU registrar Dr Muhammad Naeem Khan denied the pamphlets contained any allegations against the VC. "I saw a pamphlet. It did not mention any person's name," he said. He said the number of faculties had been increased from nine to 13, and added that several development projects were underway at the university. Dr Arif Butt will assume charge of VC from September 24 (Monday) and hold the office until the VC search committee appoints a permanent VC, Dr Khan said. Daily Times
