Appointment of vice-chancellor in seven universities, Sindh Chief Minister will conduct interviews of candidates tomorrow


Sindh Chief Minister will conduct interviews of candidates tomorrow (Wednesday, February 15) for the appointment of vice chancellors in 7 universities of Sindh.

According to sources close to Boards and Universities Secretary Mureed Rahman, the candidates have been summoned to the Chief Minister’s House for an interview.

The Chief Minister will interview the panel of three names sent by the Sindh Search Committee, 11 candidates have been called for the interview.

There is a strong possibility that the Sindh Chief Minister will approve the names of the top candidates to avoid court action as Dr. Amjad Siraj Memon from Jinnah Sindh Medical University was second while a PhD in medical education from Canada. Dr. Lubna Baig was the first. But Sindh Chief Minister did not make him VC and his case is still in court.

Among the 11 candidates who have been called, Mehran Engineering University Acting Vice-Chancellor Dr. Taha Ali is number one while Dr. Samreen is second.

According to the sources, there is a conflict in the numbers of both and there are also reports of the numbers being reduced. In IBA Sukkur, Jamia NED Professor Asif Shaikh is ranked first, while Acting VC Dr. Mir Muhammad Shah is ranked second or third.

In Dawood Engineering University Karachi, Dr. Samreen Hussain is the first rank, in Sukkur Women University Zahid Khand is the first rank, in Arora University Dr. Arbela Bhutto is the first rank, in Allah Bakhsh Soomro University Dr. Muhammad Ali Sheikh is the first rank while In Technical University Khairpur, Dr. Rasool Bakhsh Mehr is also the first rank.

However, there are many candidates among them who have given interviews for two or more universities and they are ranked second and third in addition to the first.

Interestingly, the advertisement given for the appointment by the Department of Boards and Universities was given for the entire country, but only the people with domicile of Sindh were called for the interviews.

Similarly, the age limit was kept at 62 years instead of 65 years and grade 17 experience was also included to give advantage to certain candidates.
