ISLAMABAD The names of Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani and Federal Education Minister Sardar Aseff Ahmad Ali are among the parliamentarians who did not cooperate with the universities and never provided the past record of their academic credentials for verification. The Higher Education Commission has sent a list of 428 lawmakers to the Election Commission of Pakistan who did not provide certificates of Matric and Intermediate to the universities despite repeated reminders and the ECP has written letters to theses parliamentarians to send their past record for verification. Though, the name of Sardar Aseff is not included in the list but it has been mentioned in the list that he has to give certificates of Intermediate and Matric for one degree which he obtained from Punjab University. According to well-placed sources the minister had submitted two degrees at the time of election, one from Oxford University which has been declared genuine by the HEC and the other from Punjab University. According to media reports the minister not only refused to provide the past record but also challenged the authority of the HEC for asking the certificates. The ministers who have not provided their Matric and Intermediate certificates to the universities include Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Law Minister Babar Awan , Federal Population Minister Dr Firdaus Ashiq Awan, State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Mehreen Anwar Raja, Minister for Railways Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour, Federal Minister for Information Qamar Zaman Kaira, Federal Food Minister Nazar Muhammad Gondal, Federal Minister for Social Welfare and Special Education Samina Khalid Ghurki, Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Mian Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo, Federal Minister for Environment Hameed Ullah Jan Afridi and BISP Chairperson Farzana Raja. Other lawmakers who are yet to give their certificates include prominent politicians Asfandyar Wali Khan and Afrasiab Khattak of ANP, MNA Engineer Amir Muqam, Nisar Ali Khan, Ahsan Iqbal, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Makhdoom Muhammad Javed Hashmi, Ishaq Dar and Sanaullah Masti Khel of PML-N, Ch. Parvez Elahi, Attiya Inayatullah, Muhammad Raza Hayat Harraj, Farooq Ahmed Khan Leghari and Tariq Azeem of PML-Q, Fouzia Habib of PPP. The ECP had sent about 1,084 degrees of lawmakers to the HEC for verification and so far the HEC has handed over 603 verified degrees to the ECP out of them 545 degrees have been declared genuine and 58 fake or invalid. About 11 degrees the ECP never provided to HEC for verification and 18 cases are in the courts. About 429 degrees including the degree of Sardar Aseff are yet to be verified according to the process adopted by the HEC which needs the verification of Intermediate and Matric degrees as well along with the Bachelors degree. Though the universities have verified the Bachelors degrees of some of the lawmakers but their Matric and Intermediate degrees could not be verified due to their non-cooperation.
