Stung by prolonged power outages
Like other students who passed their Intermediate
(Part-II) Science (Pre-Medical and Computer) groups annual examinations with
flying colours, the first three position holders of the Pre-Engineering group
also complained that prolonged power outages had badly affected the performance
of all the students in the examination.
They deplored the fact that
although over 60 years had elapsed since Pakistan came into being, those who
remained at the helm of affairs failed to take measures aimed at ensuring
uninterrupted power supply to the citizens.
They were expressing their
views at a reception organized in their honour by the BIEK at its conference
hall. BIEK Chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai, Controller of Examinations Prof Agha
Akber Mirza, Director-General (Colleges), Sindh, Prof Rafique Ahmed Siddiqui,
parents and principals of the meritorious students were present.
Zeeshan Jaffer, who got first position in the examination, said that he
preferred to take admission in a private college merely because there was no
student union while on the contrary government colleges had unions, most of
which usually indulged in politics.
Moreover, in his college it is
mandatory upon students to have one hundred per cent attendance in their
classes, he said, adding that he intends to do chartered accountancy.
second position holder, Mohammad Waqar Hameed, was of the view that there is no
harm in joining coaching centres because by doing so, students get extra
knowledge about their subjects. "Had I not joined the coaching centre I would
not have got the position," he added. He wishes to do masters in electronics
Syed Mohammad Ahsan Umar, who got third position, said that
students had to suffer a lot not only because of frequent power failures but
also due to traffic jams, which often occur during peak
Attributing the worsening power supply position and traffic jams
to lack of planning on part of the Karachi Electric Supply Company and the
transport department, he said that these departments could only bring
improvement in both sectors if they planned for the long term instead of taking
temporary measures. Dawn
