Karachi:February 24:A general body meeting of the Sindh University Teacher’s Association (SUTA) on Thursday demanded of the governor Sindh to hand over the post of vice chancellor to a “working professor” rather than a retired teacher.
Any person to be appointed for this senior-most position must have a PhD degree and should serve only one term, the meeting decided. After a suspension of 54 days, classes have partially resumed at the university and the protest camp at the Karachi Press Club removed.
It was said that teachers would conduct classes for three hours both in the morning and evening shifts and would spend the remaining time at the protest camp established at the SU, Jamshoro.
During the meeting, it was also stated that the proper procedure for the VC’s appointment should be followed, including the advertisement of the post in all leading newspapers. This was the newest addition to the four previous demands of the teachers’ body that included the arrest of the murderers of the slain Professor Basheer Ahmed Channar, the formation of a judicial commission to probe the murder, the reinstatement of all teachers whose services had been terminated and the withdrawal of show-cause notices to the varsity employees.
Other demands included the withdrawal of all police cases against the teaching
and non-teaching staff of the university and the removal of the incumbent varsity registrar. “Dr Ishratul Ebad should appoint the new VC within the next two months, otherwise the SUTA will once again give a strike call,” said Badar Soomro, an assistant professor at the department of Mass Communications.The news.
