LAHORE - Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of the Lahore High Court on Wednesday directed the chairmen of the Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education to inform the court when were the students of Matric issued roll number slips and how many of them could not sit in the examinations? Earlier, Lahore BISE Chairman Muhammad Akram Kashmiri and Faisalabad Board Chairman Mumtaz Hussain, along with their counsel Sheikh Shahid Waheed, appeared before the court and claimed that except for a few, all the students successfully took part in the examination. But Advocate Azhar Siddique, the petitioner, opposed their claims, saying that the parents of the students along with their kids are still protesting against the boards for not receiving the roll number slips. The board chairmen undertook before the court that all those students who could not appear in the examination would be given chance in order to save their academic year. They had informed the court hat new date for examination would also be announced soon. They further said the Punjab government had introduced the new online exam system to curb corruption, cheating of all types and Booti Mafia. The Justice said the court could issue any order for the protection of basic rights of the citizens as this matter could be minor for boards but not for the court. Mr Siddique pointed out that corruption references were pending with national accountability bureau against Dr Naeem, head of new online system of all boards. Dr Naeem had already been expelled from government College University and Punjab University of information technology on corruption charges, he added and raised a question, How a corrupt man can bring change in the system. The judge directed the boards chairmen to submit their affidavits and adjourned hearing of the case for two weeks. Advocate Azhar Siddique in his petition, had contended that all intermediate and secondary education boards of Punjab had changed the procedure of MCQs for class-x examination. He said the students needed much time to understand the newly-introduced pattern. He said the administrations of the all BISEs seemed to have decided to create hurdles for students in these examinations. Mr Siddique said this step also failed as no student could be able to submit online admission form. He pointed out that majority of the students could not get their roll number slips and had to visit board offices many time. He alleged that the students were forced to grease the palm of concerned officials to get their roll number slips. The petitioner, therefore, prayed to the court to order all BISEs to withdraw newly introduced pattern of MCQs and also stay holding of the exams till final decision on the petition.
