Punjab to refer BZU Lahore campus case to NAB: minister
Lahore: Education Minister Rana Mashhood has said that the provincial government will
refer the Bahauddin Zakariya University, Lahore Campus, closure case to
the National Accountability Bureau owing to the grave illegalities and
the violation of rules.
He said the government had
decided to close the BZU campus after viewing anomalies and
illegalities. He was replying to the queries of the members during the
Question-Hour session on Higher Education Department in the Punjab
Assembly here Friday.
Earlier, Sheikh Allauddin raised the
issue of the closure of the campus, saying the decision had put at risk
the study career of 3,000 students. He said the government did not take
notice of the campus in the beginning when the public sector
departments were releasing advertisements in the newspapers regarding
the admissions in this university and the fees were being collected. But
the provincial government closed the campus after receiving the fee
from the students, which was a great injustice.
Mashhood said the BZU campus (Lahore), had failed to get 'No Objection
Certificate' (NOC), from the Higher Education Commission (HEC), so it
was declared illegal and had to be closed. He apprised the House that
the BZU was about to start some new disciplines, including medical,
engineering and law, in violation of the rules, without seeking
permission from the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), Pakistan
Engineering Council (PEC), and the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC), as per
requirement. He announced that the provincial government was taking
legal action against this fraud and the case would be referred to the
National Accountability Bureau (NAB). He assured the House that fees of
students would be returned to them as soon as possible. Punjab Assembly
paid tributes to the first black president of South Africa Nelson
Mandela. The House observed one-minute silence to pay homage to the late

admission to eight disciplines of the BS which were earlier banned by
College Principal Prof Javed Akhtar Billah told reporters on Tuesday

Higher Education Department Secretary Tariq Mehmood Khan.
Earlier, the university had stopped the college from admitting
candidates to BBA, botany, chemistry, information technology, physics,
statistics, mathematics and zoology for the semester, Fall-2013. The ban
was imposed because of the college's poor infrastructure such as labs,
classrooms and faculty.
A notification dated Nov 26, 2013, by Dr Tahir Aqil, UoG registrar,
states that on the recommendations of the Higher Education Department,
the university has provisionally allowed the college to continue
admissions to the eight disciplines.
The notification also advised the college management to fulfill the
infrastructural requirements at the earliest, failing which might result
into HEC non-recognition of degrees in these subjects.
