KARACHI - Sindh Education Department has failed to resolve its dispute with Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) over different issues related to college teachers and education. The disagreement between both the entities is causing chaos in the process of admissions to intermediate classes under the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP), starting from July 28, 2009, while the department is focusing over the issuance of the show cause notices to the teachers belonging to SPLA. Commenting on the situation, central leader SPLA Prof Ather Hussain Mirza said that Director-General Colleges, Sindh, Dr Rafique Ahmed Siddiqui was just following the government agenda hence he was not interested in releasing burden from old government college by giving admissions to students to 7 new colleges in the City. The colleges are being over crowded year by year but the education department is heedless towards the college education, he said. Sycophants of politicians and bureaucrats belonging to Sindh Education Department were studying abroad therefore they did not care about anything related to the deterioration of college education. He said that teachers community would continue its struggle for legitimate rights of the community. On the other hand, Prof Iftikhar Muhammad Azmi, general secretary SPLA, Karachi and observer member of CAP Committee-2009, has disclosed that due to non-serious attitude of chairman CAP Committee towards education, considerable chaos and mess is expected at government colleges. He said that registration of placement forms was still going on in SRE Majeed Govt College, Stadium Road and, about 6,000 placement forms are pending. The chairman CAP Committee has increased the seats in the colleges without any consultation with college principals. No facility is provided to the colleges where seats are increased for the students placed in 2009. The increase of seats will cause many problems due to shortage of teachers and furniture and other facilities, where colleges are already overcrowded. There is dire need to start education properly at new colleges which are already ready to open and proposal is already sent to the Education Department. The education department has send this proposal to education minister, but the matter is still pending and the results of CAP-2009 are expectedly announced in the first week of September, he added. Azmi said that Director General Sindh (Colleges), Karachi and chairman CAP Committee himself along with CAP members visited these colleges and then ask to write report and constituted three members comprising of Director Inspection Sindh (Colleges), Karachi and two members of CAP Committee to submit report within three days. Names of such colleges include Govt Degree Girls College, Safora Goth, Block 12, Gulistan-e-Johar, Karachi, Govt Degree Girls College, Buffer Zone, Govt Girls Degree College, Pak Colony, Govt Degree Girls College, Surjani Town, Govt Degree Girls College, Gulshan-e-Maymar, Govt Degree Girls College, Kharadar, Panjabi Club and Govt Degree Boys College, Metroville, Orangi Town, he added. When DG Colleges, Sindh, Dr Rafique Ahmed Siddiqui contacted by The Nation, his mobile phone went off.
