Admission irregularities in MAO College to be investigated

Lahore: The Punjab Higher Education Department has constituted a two-member committee to investigate alleged irregularities in Government MAO College's B Com admissions and incident of violence.

The committee has been formed on the instructions of the Punjab chief secretary. The issue of illegal admissions surfaced a couple of weeks ago when some students of the Government MAO College staged a protest demonstration outside the Lahore Press Club after the Punjab University (PU) refused to register them for annual examinations. The Punjab University had denied registration to these students on the pretext that the Government MAO College had granted admissions to more students than the seats allocated to it for B Com programme. Reportedly, a student group previously attached with the PML-Q manipulated admissions in MAO College's B Com programme in violation of rules and regulations. College's acting principal Prof Muhammad Khan had also leveled similar accusations. The committee would submit its report within a week.

Applications invited for vacant slots at KEMU

Lahore: The newly-appointed Vice Chancellor of King Edward Medical University, Lahore, Prof Dr Zafarullah Khan, has invited applications from teaching faculty to fill posts lying vacant as a result of transfers or termination of services under reversal of the orders of contractual reemployments in the university.

The vacant posts included Registrar, Controller of Examinations, Director Administration, Director Purchase and Director Works here at the King Edward Medical University.

The post of Registrar had been lying vacant after Dr Shafqat Ranjha was transferred and posted as Special Secretary Health, Department of Health, Punjab, while services of Col (retd) Masood-ul-Haq, Controller of Examinations having additional charge of Director Administration, Habibullah Goraya, Director Works, and Taj Khattak, Director Purchase, were terminated in compliance with reversal of orders of contractual re-employment by the Punjab Government.

As stop gap arrangement, Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Syed Muhammad Awais handed over three additional charges of Registrar, Director Administration and Director Purchase to Principal Medical Officer (PMO) Dr Manzoor Alam.

Similarly, Additional Principal Medical Officer (APMO) Community Medicine Department Dr Akhtar Long was handed an additional charge of Controller of Examinations, while Additional Principal Medical Officer (APMO) Pharmacology Department Dr Iftikhar Mirza was given additional charge of Director Works of the university.

The KEMU VC Prof Dr Zafarullah Khan called Academic Council meeting on Tuesday (today), which besides its own agenda of newly-appointed VC's first meeting with the faculty members of the university would also discuss the matter of filling of vacant posts in the university.
