Mariam Nawaz's admission violation?

Mariam Nawaz's admission echoes in National Assembly
Islamabad, Dec 20: With MNAs overlooking debate on national security, the National Assembly on Friday witnessed drama over the admission of Nawaz Sharif's daughter who had allegedly fallen short of merit to a medical college 15 years ago.

MNA Shahnaz Sheikh, through a point of order, starting discussion on the distribution of a pamphlet about the admission of Nawaz Sharif's daughter to a medical college. Nawaz's daughter was allegedly given admission to the college despite falling short of merit.

Shahnaz also criticised the media and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for the 'unnecessary hype' in a case related to the award of extra marks to the chief justice's daughter. Several members were seen reading the pamphlet which read 'stop the character assassination of the nation's daughters' in violation of the decorum of the House. Prime Minister Gilani read out a rule that no paper or document could be distributed in the House without the permission of the speaker.

Mariam's admission not in violation of rules: Ahsan
Lahore: The impression that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif's daughter's admission to a medical college was in violation of rules is baseless, PML-N Information Secretary Ahsan Iqbal said on Friday. Iqbal said it was all propaganda against the PML-N chief. He said Mariam Nawaz had only migrated from Army Medical College, Rawalpindi to King Edward Medical College, Lahore, which was done according to the prescribed rules and regulations. Iqbal said being the prime minister at the time, it was easier for Nawaz to get Mariam admitted to a medical college on special quota according to the rules prevailing at the time but he had preferred his daughter's admission on merit.

PML-N chief (also being guilty of an irregularity in the college admission) should now stop exploiting the Farah Dogar case. Dawn

BA/BSc exam a month earlier: Students at the mercy of private academies
Lahore: The BA/BSc students are at the mercy of private academies as it has become difficult for colleges to complete their course after the Punjab University's (PU) announced to conduct the exam a month earlier than the scheduled date, learnt from students.

Larger interest: Last month, the PU Examination Department has announced to hold the BA/BSc exam on February 17 instead of March 12 in "the larger interest of students". Students from across the city protested against the decision.

Several college principals opposed the decision, saying that the PU should have informed them in the beginning of the year.

Dues: The students said the decision had forced them to join private academies. "The academies have increased their dues as we are left with no other option," they said.

PU Controller of Examinations said that there was a clash in the dates of matric and intermediate exams with that of BA/BSc. He said lack of examination centres and supervisory staff were major reasons that forced the PU administration to conduct the exams a month earlier. He said they had urged the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) to change their schedule, but to no avail.

Muhammad, a Civil Line College student, said the academies had announced new fee schedules after the PU's decision. Two month ago the academies were charging Rs 500 to Rs 600 per month for a subject. He said that the academies were now charging Rs 1,000 per month for a subject. Earlier, all academies were charging Rs 3,000 for the completion of BA English course that had been doubled after the PU's decision, he said.

Arslan, a BSc student, said that a large number of students had joined the academies that had affected the efficiency of teachers.

Rukhshanda, an academy teacher, said students were left with only two months for the preparation of their exams. She said teachers at colleges were trying to complete the course, but due to Eid and winter vacations (from December 24 to December 31) they could not complete it.

Rana Academy Administration Officer Rana Sageer said the academy had witnessed an influx of students and they were doing their best to solve students' problems. He said the academy was charging Rs 1,000 per month for each subject. Daily Times

HEC refuses to recognise bachelor degree of MPA
Lahore: Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan on Friday informed the Lahore High Court that it did not recognise the bachelor degree of Mian Muhammad Azam Chaila, PML-Q returned candidate from PP-82. Azam Chaila was provisionally allowed to contest election and later to take oath as assembly member.

An official of the HEC on the court direction appeared before a full bench and told it that the HEC recognised the degrees of regular students of Al-Khair University and not of those who passed BA as private students.

He said Azam Chaila passed his BA as a private candidate and that is why his degree did not fall under the recognised category. At this the court asked the counsel for Chaila whether he wanted to say anything in his defence. The counsel sought time to present record of the university before the court, which at the time of filing of the nomination papers duly recognised his client's degree but now discriminately trying to deprive him of the degree. The allowed time till January 14.

Returning Officer had allowed him to participate in election but election tribunal had disqualified him. Azam Chaila had assailed that order in writ petition before a full bench. The bench had allowed him to contest election but his result would not be announced. Azam Chaila moved a petition in Supreme Court that allowed issuance his notification and taking oath but ruled that his qualification would be decided by full bench of LHC. The Nation

"I appreciate the decision of HEC on the issue.I know Mr.Chaila personally.He could not contest 2002 election because he hadnt any kind of B-A degree. But in last genral elections,by the help of ASNAADS of deni madaris,he obtained fake degree from Al Khair Universty AJK.Earlier an election tribunal of Lahore High Court said in its judgement that Mr.Chaila tried to contest election on fake degree and rejected his nomination papers as a candidate from pp82.I appeals to authorities concerned that strict action should be taken against fake degree holder and such politicians should be restrained from politics for whole life to save this country.I also appeals that action should be taken against those universties which are involved to issue such kind of fake degrees."
