Peshawar University lecturers' promotion opposed

PESHAWAR, Sep 1: A group of Peshawar University's syndicate members have appealed to the NWFP governor against promotion of some lecturers, which they said has no legal standing. The university administration, on the other hand, has reserved the right to take the matter to the court.

A spokesman for the university told APP here on Friday that under section 39 of the University of Peshawar Act 1947, university employees can appeal to the governor (chancellor) only when their job or its related matters are affected by an order. And the appeal can only be sent through the vice-chancellor and cannot be addressed directly to the chancellor.

The chancellor cannot be contacted directly, he said. Therefore, the step taken by some syndicate members is illegal and can be challenged in the court, he said.

The teaching staff has expressed full satisfaction over the 397th meeting of the university syndicate and the administration, he added.

Except for a few members of the syndicate who left the meeting over personal matters and are now resorting to a blame game, the members who were present were satisfied with it, he added.

Peshawar University Teachers Association (PUTA) general secretary Dr Hizbullah Khan has appreciated the decisions of the recent syndicate meeting and assured his full support on behalf of the teaching community.

It is pertinent to mention here that the code of conduct was properly followed during the meeting and the chancellor has been informed of the actual situation, he said.

According to the spokesman, the promotion of lecturers was made in line with the policy of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and all objections levelled against it are false. APP
