'Fake' SPLA head threatens college students
Karachi: Sindh Professor and Lecturer Association (SPLA) has threatened to transfer the children of KESC officials studying in colleges of the city, if the power utility does not end loadshedding in college hours.
In a rather controversial statement, the self-acclaimed president of SPLA Prof Iftikhar Azmi gave a two-day ultimatum to Karachi Electric Supply company (KESC) administration for accepting his demands. Azmi said that SPLA will issue Transfer Certificate (TC) to children of power entity officials studying in colleges of the city if KESC fails to abide by their demands.
In this regard, when contacted the former President of SPLA Prof Athar Hussain, he said that Prof Azmi is the fake president of SPLA. He was general secretary of SPLA and now a retired person of the association, said Hussain.
"After my tenure, Azmi wanted to get the commanding post but when situation went otherwise for him, he announced a separate SPLA which is not even recognised at any level," said former president. He added that Azmi used to issue such kinds of awful statements, which was the reason for not electing him as the commanding member of the body after his retirement. Hussain further said that current president of SPLA is Prof Feeroz Siddiqui.
When contacted, Prof Siddiqui informed, "Azmi was former president and as per the new body, he is nothing in SPLA." According to rule, no principal can be a part of SPLA body and Azmi is a school principal, he said.
Siddiqui said that SPLA issued statements numerous times that Azmi has no connection with SPLA.
"This kind of statement is unpleasant, which should not have been issued by the member of education sector, which is considered most reputed," Siddiqui said. He further added that SPLA condemned these things and would take action against Azmi.
Meanwhile, KESC in its statement said, "The statement by SAPLA is awful besides being unserious. KESC is not a welfare company, which provides supply free of cost. Due to government authorities' ignorant behaviour, KESC resorts to load shedding. If authorities pay dues on time, supply will be restored without any suspension."
KESC expressed deep sorrow on Azmi's statement and said, "Government colleges have KESC dues worth Rs 28 million, which they are not paying." KESC spokesperson said local-government schools have liabilities of Rs 30 million and Sindh government schools have liabilities of 60 million.
Azmi in his statement further said that unannounced power breakdowns had badly affected the students' exam preparations. He urged the education boards to give extra marks to the students affected by the crippling power outages carried out by KESC.
He said KESC administration is always ready to disconnect electricity supply to colleges over non-payment of dues but is never seen willing to improve its performance.
He urged the provincial government to allocate five percent of GDP for education in the province and restore funds in account of sports and magazines, which had been suspended by former education minister Pir Mazharul Haq.
Azmi said most college administrations were unable to pay electricity bills due to lack of funds, if government restores these funds the situation will automatically improve. It is pertinent to mention here that to know Azmi's opinion, DT made several attempts to contact him, but he could not be reached. Daily times
