Another retired general to head FPSC | PU results
Sabahat, enjoys full confidence of Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvaiz Kayani
Islamabad, May 09: Another retired military general is expected to be inducted at the
prestigious position of Chairman Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC)
Lt-Gen (retd) Syed Sabahat Hussain may get the FPSC chairman
position that is lying vacant since Lt-Gen (retd) Shahid Hamid completed his
three-year term last March 30, official sources said on Friday.
Sabahat, who retired on May 5, 2009 while holding the position of
Chairman Pakistan Ordnance Factory (POF), enjoys full confidence of Chief of the
Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvaiz Kayani.
The sources said the purpose
behind keeping the seat vacant for over a month is the retirement of Gen Sabahat
from the Pakistan Army. The constitutional post should have been filled from the
very next day after its former chairmen ended his term, sources said while
referring to the provisions of the Constitution.
I have not been
conveyed either by Presidency, Prime Minister Secretariat or a relevant
authority whether I am being appointed as chairman FPSC or not, said Gen
Sabahat when this correspondent contacted him.
Official sources both at
the FPSC and Establishment Division however insisted that a formal notification
in this regard may be issued within a couple of days. The president, being the
appointing authority, has given approval in principle and the things are
expected to be formalised shortly after Zardari's return from the US visit,
they added. The position of FPSC chairman has been held previously by Lt-Gen
(retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiani and Lt-Gen (retd) Shahid Hamid.

GCU lecture series ends with look at financial crisis
Lahore: The concluding day of a series of lectures on various issues of macroeconomics ended on Friday
with a look at the present financial crisis and its origins and
Hosted by the Government College University Economics
Department, the four-day series of lectures was delivered by Professor Roy
Grieve of the University of Strathclyde Glasgow UK, who is currently visiting
GCU, Lahore under the GCU-Strathclyde University, Higher Education Commission
and British Council Higher Education Link Programme (Phase II). During the
discussion, Grieve questioned whether the sudden panic in the economic world
could herald a return to the principles of Keynesian economics. John Keynes
advocated interventionist government policy by which the government would use
fiscal and monetary measures to mitigate the adverse effects of economic
recessions, depressions and booms.
Earlier, during the previous three
lectures, Grieve covered a diverse range of topics related to macroeconomics,
focusing on the subject in light of Classical, Neoclassical, and Keynesian
Perspectives. He also highlighted the different dimensions of New Classical and
New Keynesian Economics. The four-day series of lectures was attended by a large
number of graduate and postgraduate students of the GCU; the Kinnaird College
for Women; the Government College for Women Chuna Mandi; and various other
educational institutions of Lahore.
Following his last lecture, the
British professor called on GCU Vice-Chancellor Dr Khalid Aftab at Vice
Chancellor Committee Room of the varsity. On the occasion, Dr Aftab
congratulated Professor Grieve on the successful completion of the lecture
series. He said the lectures had been very insightful and highly rewarding for
students of macroeconomics. Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Dean Dr Khalid
Pervaiz, Department of Economics Chairman Asif Saeed and Academic Planning and
External Links Director Fouzia Shaheen were also present at the
Academic circles have acclaimed Professor Grieve's visit, saying
it was a great move for the GCU to invite a foreign scholar to Pakistan at a
time when most foreign teachers were reluctant to visit the nation. They said
the macroeconomics professor's visit would help dispel the impression that the
country was not safe for scholars and encourage similar interactions and
exchanges between educational institutions of Lahore and the rest of the
world. Daily Times

"I am a governmet High School Teacher. I personally think trainigs play very important role in the life of a teacher. They make them better at their profession. However, for being trained one has to be serious and committed. What we see around us is SIFARISH and connections. The teachers who really deserve to be trained seldom get the information from the concerned authorities in due time. On the contrary those who lack seriousness get this kind of information and are also recommended by the authorities."
