Punjab University associations' anti-VC pamphlets

PU associations distributing anti-VC pamphlets
Lahore, Sep 11: The Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) and the PU Administrative and Technical Staff Association on Wednesday distributed anti-vice-chancellor pamphlets among teachers and students.

They also accused PU VC Dr Mujahid Kamran of sacking PU teachers on false charges of plagiarism. PUASA President Dr Mumtaz Salik said that teachers and employees of the university were against the VC's policies.

PUASA started distributing the pamphlets soon after the VC sacked five PU teachers on plagiarism charges. This week, the technical staff association also distributed pamphlets against the VC.

In February, the then governor, Khalid Maqbool, retired former PU Centre for High Energy Physics director Dr Fazle Aleem along with four other teachers of the same department Rashid Ahmad, Sohail Afzal Tahir, M Aslam Saeed and Maqsood Ahmad for plagiarism.

Dictatorial behaviour: According to the pamphlets, the VC was harassing teachers and employees. It claims that the VC had appointed 17 people without advertising their jobs.

Salik said that they were protesting against the "dictatorial behaviour" of the VC. He said, "A few days ago, the PU syndicate members denied the option to sit with the VC in a meeting. Later, four of the 16 syndicate members attended the meeting."

On condition of anonymity, a technical staff association member said, "The VC made new appointments in violation of the University Act. The VC had threatened PU deputy registrar (admin 2) Muhammad Munir Chughtai with suspension from service, due to which he died on August 6."

Allegations: PU Registrar Dr Naeem Khan, while rejecting the allegations against the VC, said that the VC had given a much-needed boost to the university.

A PU teacher said, "The university's situation is going from bad to worse, as there are a lot of issues that need the VC's attention."
