KEMU and UHS: VCs may be picked from one panel
Lahore: The issue of appointment of regular vice
chancellors of the two leading medical universities of the province has
taken a 'new turn' after the chief minister reportedly finalised the
name of Prof Dr Faisal Masood, the Services Hospital principal, for the
slot of KEMU VC.
Earlier, Prof Faisal's name was finalised and recommended in the
first week of January in a panel of three contenders for the slot of
University of Health Sciences by a search committee tasked with the
selection of VCs for the KEMU and UHS.
Headed by former federal minister Sartaj Aziz, the committee had
interviewed 41 candidates for the two top slots and recommended two
panels of three each shortlisted senior medics. For the post of the UHS
vice-chancellor the committee had recommended a panel of three doctors
namely Prof Dr Faisal Masood, Allama Iqbal Medical College former
principal Prof Dr Javed Akram and former dean of Postgraduate Medical
Institute Maj-Gen (retired) Prof Dr Muhammad Aslam. While it had
finalised names of Professor of Surgery Dr Abdul Majeed Chaudhry,
ex-chief executive of Punjab Institute of Cardiology, Lahore, Prof Dr
Jawad Sajid Khan and a UK-based Pakistani national senior doctor, Prof
Sarwat Husain for the KEMU slot.
However, the chief minister had returned the summary after raising objection to it and directed to revise it.
A senior official privy to the development said that the chief
minister had objected to the names of two candidates including Prof
Abdul Majeed Chaudhry recommended in the panel for KEMU.
He said Prof Majeed had served as Fatima Jinnah Medical College/Sir
Ganga Ram Hospital principal and he was among first three candidates who
had secured highest marks in an interview conducted by the search
Prof Majeed was said to be a hot contender for the KEMU slot but the
CM rejected him on the 'grounds' that he was shareholder of a private
The official said according to the laid down policy, objections by
any competent authority like chief minister on the two candidates of a
panel meant that it (panel) stood disbanded automatically and the health
department was bound to re-advertise the post inviting fresh
However, instead of initiating a fresh process for interview, the health department revised the panels in a hurry on its own.
Interestingly, he said, this time the health authorities had
recommended only one panel of six candidates for the vacant posts of the
both medical universities, putting name of Prof Faisal Masood at the
top for the KEMU slot.
"I think the search committee was not consulted before recommending
the panel to the chief minister that might create unrest among the other
contenders and legal complications too," the official said.
He said legal opinion was not sought as well before recommending all three panels to the chief minister.
The official said Maj-Gen (retired) Prof Dr Muhammad Aslam is close to the run for the top slot of UHS.

Guard protests sacking by climbing up tower
Lahore: A guard of the Lahore College for Women
University on Monday climbed up a radio transmission tower in protest
against termination of his service which he alleged was ordered to
create jobs for some favourites of the chief security officer.
Muhammad Nawaz, was among the five security guards who were sacked on
the orders of Chief Security Officer Maj Muhammad Mansha (retired) on
Feb 1 on 'flimsy' charges.
Nawaz along with his four other sacked colleagues - Ramzan, Muhammad
Taj, Hanif and Safdar Mahmood - has been visiting the administration
officials since they received termination orders but to no avail.
Nawaz, a father of five, resident of Azad Kashmir, finally got
desperate and climbed up the 500-foot high radio transmission tower
installed on the rooftop of the varsity's mass communication department
and threatened to commit suicide if the termination orders for all the
five men were not immediately withdrawn.
He turned down requests of his colleagues to climb down and also of
the Rescue 1122 officials who had been called on the spot to handle the
"I went up the tower and gave an assurance to Nawaz that the issue
will be again taken up by the varsity administration," a security guard,
Safdar, who climbed up the tower to convince his colleague to come
He said Nawaz at first was adamant but later gave up because of the
chilly weather and his fragile health. After being brought down, he was
immediately shifted by the Rescue 1122 staff to a nearby hospital.
Safdar alleged Maj Mansha (retired) and security officer Manzoor
Ahmad wanted to accommodate some of their relatives by 'creating space'
in the security section. The recruitment process was under way these
He said they first converted the contract agreement of the five men
into daily wages and then sacked them from the post without any 'solid
Another security guard, Ishaq, said over 30 security men were
discharging duties at the varsity on a contract basis. He said they had
been demanding a regular status and this irritated the chief security
officer and other senior officials concerned.
He alleged the chief security officer first verbally 'suspends'
guards for some months and then misappropriates their salaries for the
period without bringing the matter to the notice of the varsity
administration.He said Nawaz was the sole breadwinner of his family and
had been denied salary for the last three months.
When contacted, Maj Mansha denied the allegations and termed Nawaz's act a drama to cover up his 'negligence'.
He said he had suspended contract of three security guards for
'violation of discipline' and 'poor performance', adding they were
sacked following the set procedure.
"If security guards are not sincere to their duty, the punishment or
termination is the only solution. So I terminated them", he said and
also rejected allegations of misuse of guards' salaries saying it was
the job of a different varsity department and he had nothing to do with
He said the process of fresh recruitment against seven vacant posts at the LCWM was going on.
Earlier in last September a Model Town Society (MTS) employee had
resorted to similar mode of protest and climbed up a high-voltage
electricity pole near the residence of PML-N president Nawaz Sharif at
Model Town after being transferred.
Similarly, around a dozen rickshaw drivers went up high-voltage
electricity poles at Babu Sabu in March 2012 after a traffic warden
allegedly misbehaved with one of them.
Civil Lines police arrested Nawaz and Safdar on Monday night from their quarters situated on LCWU premises.
SHO Abid Rasheed, confirming arrests of the guards, said an FIR under
section 325 of the PPC had been lodged against them on the complaint of
chief security officer Maj (retired) Mansha. He said they were arrested
on the charges of attempting suicide and 'blackmailing' the varsity
