Karachi, Sindh Professors & Lecturers Association SPLA has contradicted the statement issued from Commissioner Karachi’s office that the teachers of D. J. College have promised to conduct examinations scheduled on June 04 and 08. However, in a meeting of SPLA leaders and Chairman, Board of Intermediate Education, it was decided that examination scheduled for 4th June would be held at D. J. College and the center would be shifted to other college for conducting examination of June 08.
The college teachers had attended the meeting with Commissioner but no such promise was made, a joint statement of SPLA Karachi region office bearers Prof. Muzaffar Ali Rizvi, Prof. Iftikhar Muhammad Azmi, Prof. Dr. Arshad and Prof. Asif Zaidi said on Sunday.
The SPLA statement contended that during the meeting, the teachers had raised the issue of disconnecting the power supply of D. J. College and other problems. Unfortunately, the electricity has not yet been restored while the fact is that there are 43 colleges of Karachi without power. The examination process is about to end but electricity has not been restored to these colleges. At other examination centers, the students have been suffering due to load shedding of electricity by the KESC.
The SPLA leaders disclosed that police failed to enforce law and protect the college teachers during examination as the police itself forced the teachers to allow students using unfair means. The violence against teachers during the examinations has become a routine.
The statement said that the meeting with BIEK chairman, also attended by Controller Imran Chishti, it was decided to examination procedure would be changed next year to curb use of unfair means.
