PU teachers slam governor's 'unnecessary interference'

LAHORE, Sep 1: Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) on Friday denounced Chancellor/Governor Lt Gen (r) Khalid Maqbool for what it called 'unnecessary interference' in routine affairs of the Punjab University (PU). According to a press release issued by the PUASA, PUASA president Dr Mumtaz Ahmed Salik while speaking to PUASA executive committee meeting said due to the chancellor's 'interference' in the PU matters teachers' problems increased. He said the chancellor had abolished seats for employees' children. He said it was not fair that the chancellor had ordered teachers to switch to the lounges from their rooms. He said the chancellor had rejected the decision of PU statutory bodies, which was an unconstitutional act. He said the chancellor should take back his decisions otherwise the PUASA would wear black armbands on his (governor) arrival in the PU.

The PUASA members hailed the Lahore High Court for directing PU administration to give admission to 18 students of BA/BSc (Hons) in MA/MSc without taking entry test through the National Testing Service. He said the Lahore High Court should take suo-moto action of admission to other programmes like BA/BSc (Hons), MA/MSc and admission to medical colleges and engineering universities through the entry test. The meeting observed that the entry test system was implemented forcefully. The meeting also observed that there was dire need to free the nation from this 'illegal', 'unethical', 'cruel' and 'exploitative' system. He said through abolishing entry test system students belonging to poor families could also be able to get admission in higher education institutions.

PU registrar Dr Naeem Khan said that Khalid Maqbool being a chancellor was part of the PU and it was his (governor) right to take part in the PU matters. He said due to the personal interest of the chancellor a record budget of Rs 2,880 million has been approved for the PU. He said, "The chancellor 'hard work' for the development of the PU should be appreciated." He said whenever the chancellor would visit the PU, he (chancellor) would be given a red carpet welcome. He said that no quota of the PU employees' children had been abolished. He said, "We are giving admissions to employees' children according to the previous policy." Daily times
