According to a press statement issued by SMBBMU spokesman Dr Memon, the meeting in very clear terms declared that it had implemented the government order and closed the evening classes.
The meeting also decided to start evening OPDs at the CMC hospital under the auspices of the SMBBMU for providing free health facilities to the poor.

He said Prof Mahar had been asked to submit his report on the proposal within a week.
Prior to the opening of evening classes, the SMBBMU vice chancellor had acquired the services of professors and other staff from the CMC and the Ghulam Mohammed Mahar Medical College (GMMMC), Sukkur. Certain ad hoc appointments of 'trainee' were also made to facilitate the evening programme.
When asked what will be the fate of that staff, Dr Memon said that they would now be repatriated to their original departments. Prof Amar Gurbakhshani (pharmacology), Prof Dr K.

For 25 self-financing scheme seats, only seven candidates had deposited the fee, Rs600,000, for the one-year term in the shape of demand draft.
