IJT condemns formation of TEVTA
The Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) has condemned the formation of the Technical
Education & Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA), which, they say, will
"own all technical institutions and their assets."
At a press conference
on Wednesday, the IJT leadership demanded that the ordinance should be presented
before experts and then sent to the provincial assembly again for discussion
before it is implemented.
They said that such a transfer was tantamount
to restricting technical education to the affluent sections of society and
closing the doors of education to students from poorer segments.
be recalled that the Sindh TEVTA Ordinance 2007 has been promulgated because the
Sindh chief secretary has signed it on April 24. Air Chief Marshal (retd)
Riazuddin Shaikh has been nominated as TEVTA director. The board will have a
total of nine members, including four from the industrial sector. The IJT
criticised the appointment of a retired air marshal who had no academic
credentials. "The industrialists are unable to run the industry in the country.
Handing over TEVTA to them is no less than privatising technical education, thus
making it a business venture that will destroy the educational mosaic of
society. The News

Extension in retired VCs' service opposed
Karachi: The Federation of All-Pakistan Universities Academic Staff
Association (Fapuasa), Sindh chapter, has urged the competent authority to
immediately remove those vice-chancellors who retired long ago but got
extensions in their service. Such vice-chancellors include those of the
University of Karachi, the NED University of Engineering Technology and the
Sindh University, they pointed out.
Speaking at a press conference at
the Karachi Press Club, Fapuasa representatives claimed that the search
committee set up by Sindh Governor Ishratul Ibad for finding suitable
academicians for appointment as vice-chancellor had lost its credibility,
alleging that the committee members were working for their self-interests and
"Appointment of retired persons as VCs has created
unrest at universities," they said, adding that most universities in Sindh were
headed by retired people.
They pointed out the Sindh University
vice-chancellor had been awarded a third term while the Karachi University
vice-chancellor was passing his second term after his retirement.
Fapuasa president Prof Dr Liaquat Ali Tunio said that vice-chancellor of
the Sindh University was a simple graduate and did not qualify for the post.
Appointment of retired bureaucrats and army officers at academic institutions
was not acceptable to the association, he added.
"The sitting VCs are
creating hurdles in the promotion of teachers and are playing in the hands of
the Higher Education Commission," alleged Prof Dr Badr Soomro, secretary-general
of the association. Fapuasa leaders demanded that senior, qualified, in-service
teachers should be brought in to handle administrative posts, alleging that
retired professors, bureaucrats and army officers promoted an authoritarian
culture and crippled academic institutions.
They also called for
restoration of the allocated grants of universities across the country, and said
financial help should be extended to senior teachers in Sindh as was being done
in other provinces.
They accused the HEC of discriminating against
senior teachers in Sindh, and said that the HEC had extended financial help to
university teachers in Punjab, NWFP and Balochistan but not in Sindh.
Highlighting the financial problems being faced by the country's
universities, the leaders said that a number of research projects had been
stalled midway and it had become difficult for the institutions to pay salaries
and clear utility bills.
They demanded that the lecturers who had served
for 12 years should be given grade 19 without changing their academic status.
Similarly, the assistant professors who had served for 15 to 17 years and the
associate professors who have worked for 25 years at their respective
institutions should be given grade 21 without changing their academic status.
Cases of such teachers, Mr Tunio said, had been taken up in other provinces and
they were getting support from the HEC, adding that the same practice was needed
in Sindh. Dawn
