Dr Jamil Anwar, dean of Science Faculty, said that though there were many minor problems with the working of the HEC but during the chairmanship of Dr Attaur Rahman it did excellent work.
Dr Iftikhar Baloch complained that the Punjab University's some grants were held by HEC during his chairmanship. Responding to it, Dr Atta said that plagiarism by some PU teachers was its reason.
