LAHORE - Chief Minister Secretariat Punjab has directed the secretary health Punjab to hold an inquiry into the irregularities committed during the recent recruitments made in King Edward Medical University, sources in the health department revealed on Saturday. The sources said the action was taken on the complaint of Mushtaq Ahmad, resident of Okara, who claimed in his application that he had applied for the post of cook in KEMU in July 2009. In January he was informed that he has been selected and asked to report for joining. When he reached the university he was asked to contact Dr Tabbasum who, seeing him, totally denied of his recruitment saying 'what sort of joining. The applicant further said in his application, When I furnished reference of the list displayed on the notice board according to which my name was on number 102 in serial, Dr Tabasum interviewed me once again and said there would be another order of your appointment that would be issued by him and would be delivered to you at your home and you would perform your duty at my home, the application added. Mushtaq alleged the doctor gave him a cell number 0333-4218380 and asked to see him in Gulshan-e-Ravi area at evening at his private clinic. Dr Tabasum said your job would be on daily wages basis and you would have to perform duty of 12 hours. If you are interested in regular job of eight hour duty then pay me Rs 25,000 and I would manage to issue your regular orders within same day. The applicant said he was a street hawker and he was not able to arrange such huge amount listening which the doctor became furious and threatened he would get him failed in the medical test. Apart from the complaint of Mushtaq, the office-bearers of King Edward Contract Employees Action Committee have blamed that irregularities were committed in recruitments made by the Human Resource Department of the university. One Shehbaz said orders of Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif regarding regularisation of contractual employees were violated and only 65 specific and recommended people were regularised. He said Amanat driver of the KEMU VC, who entered the university with recommendation of former health minister Tahir Ali Javed was regularised violating rules and regulations. He said out of 65 regularised people nine belong to Gulshan-e-Ravi area where Dr Tabasum resides. As per instructions of the chief minister there was 20 per cent quota for children of employees which was not entertained. When contacted, Professor Dr Zafar Ullah Khan, Vice Chancellor of the University, to know his viewpoint on the issue he said, I have personally wrote Mushtaq to visit my office and assured him I will appoint him after listening to him. He came once but at that day Mian Hamza Shahbaz Sharif was in in the university and he could not see me. He said Dr Tabasum had no concern with the recruitments. About regularisation process he said all contractual employees were regularised as per direction of the chief minister and rest of the employees who were making hue and cry were never contractual ones. He said their services were hired in the past by the former KEMU VC purely using his discretionary powers for one year. As per Punjab government policy, only those employees were considered contractual who were hired after publicising their jobs in press and after which they have to pass through test and interview process. The VC said the matter was in high court and if the court order us to recruit these people we would remove the already hired ones and appoint them.
