Undue delay in Punjab school teachers appointments

Candidates fear merit will be ignored
Rawalpindi, Sep 05: The undue delay in appointments of teachers in Punjab government schools has created unrest among candidates who appeared in written test and interview in May this year.

A number of candidates who appeared in the written test and interview alleged that the education department was trying to fill the vacant posts under influence of bureaucracy and politicians.

Javed Khan, Mohammad Ibrar, Malik Jabbar, Ms Rehana and Tabassum said that they had come to meet the concerned EDO as when the process of recruitment would be completed.

They said they had followed all the rules and regulations of the education department and the EDO had assured them the whole process of recruitment would be completed within one month. However, almost three months have passed, but we have not received any letter.

They alleged that around 80 per cent seats were being filled on non-merit basis and the education department under the influence of politicians and bureaucrats was depriving the deserving candidates.

They demanded of the Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to order an inquiry into the alleged mismanagement from the education department in the process of recruitments.

Education officer in EDO office Mukhtar Ahmed while commenting over the issue said that the process of appointments would be completed within next ten days. "The successful candidates would receive their letters before the end of Ramazan. They would join their duties after Ramazan ul Mubarik." He refuted the allegations that the appointments were being made on political pressure or interference of bureaucrats. He said rather, the merit policy has been adopted strictly on special orders of the Punjab Chief Minister, Mian Shahbaz Sharif.

The concerned official did not pick up the phone even after repeated attempts.

The Education Coordinator of Chief Minister Task Force, Chaudhry Muhammad Aslam while commenting over the issue said that the process of recruitment of 2,500 teachers/educators would be completed within next three days.

Referring to the allegations being levelled by several candidates related to 90 per cent appointments of educators being made on political influence and pressure, he refuted them. "Strict merit has been followed in the recruitment process, he added. The news

New QAU VC appointment demanded
Islamabad: The teaching faculty of Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) has demanded the appointment of new vice-chancellor at the right time as the tenure of Dr Muhammad Qasim Jan ends.

The vice-chancellor Search Committee of Higher Education Commission is responsible to select and appoint a vice-chancellor at a university but no selection process has been initiated by the committee yet as a period of only one month has been left in the expiry of Dr Qasim's term.

The teaching faculty had also met Shehnaz Wazir Ali, former in charge HEC, who had assured them to appoint new vice-chancellor and agreed not to give extension to Dr Qasim's tenure.

"In the first week of October the term of the present vice-chancellor would be ended. There are speculations that his term could be extended because so far, no advertisements have been placed in the press inviting new applications for the job as the selection process for the appointment of new VC is lengthy", a professor said.

Majority of the faculty members here feel that he should not stay here any more as he has failed to resolve their problems for which they protested for nearly six weeks but their demands are still unheeded. It is very likely that the protest demonstration would start again by the professors and lecturers with the start of the classes, he added. The nation
