Karachi:20 March:The NED University Teachers Association (Neta) has expressed concerns over the rumours of cancellation of the selection board meeting, which was supposed to look into different issues, including appointments and promotions of teachers.

According to the general secretary of Neta, Dr Muhammad Imran Aslam, the association called a meeting on Friday, which was presided over its president, Professor Dr Syed Usman Ali Shah.
