They all are students of MBBS Part I at Fatima Jinnah Medical College, affiliated with the PU. In an identical petition, Dehghani submitted that, like others, she appeared in MBBS Part I annual examination 2008 availing her third chance but unluckily she failed in the subjects of Anatomy and Biochemistry. She submitted that on January 10, 2009 the college authorities struck her out from the college declaring her ineligible for further medical education in Pakistan. She said on November 23, 2007 governor of the Punjab, who is also the chancellor of the university, issued notification deciding that four chances would be given to the students. She said according to the notification she was entitled for the grant of four chances. She said King Edward Medical University following the governor's notification was providing four chances to the students. She said already the LHC in identical petitions had issued directions to the university to give fourth chance to the students to appear in examinations. She prayed directions for the university authorities to let her avail fourth chance of examination. Further hearing of pleas against increased tariff today Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of the Lahore High Court on Saturday (today) will hear further arguments on a number of identical petitions challenging the increase of electricity tariff. All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) filed petitions on behalf of its members while dozens of industrial units individually filed petitions challenging the implementation of revised tariff of electricity at peak hours and much higher rates on commercial users. Petitioners said that Nepra determined the tariff on February 23, 2007 and made industrial consumers to pay substantially higher rate of electricity. But despite enduring sufferings they started making payment in the best national interest. He said just after 13 days of passing of tariff, the electric distribution companies filed a review petition before Nepra. The petitioners argued that with acceptance of review petitions the tariff was hugely enhanced to the greatest disadvantage violating the natural principle of no one should be condemned unheard. Zafar further pleaded that Nepra is gaining more moneys and illegal profits from APTMA causing thereby irreparable sufferings to the members of the association. He said that the government is considering the matter afresh in a committee in which the stakeholders are also discussing the matter. The petitioners said the Nepra did not have the review powers under the law but it proceeded with and accepted their review petitions without giving nay notice to petitioners or their parent association APTMA. Earlier, after conclusion of arguments, the judge on January 19 had reserved the judgment on petitions moved on behalf of different textile mills located in Faisalabad against tariff increase by Faisalabad Electricity Supply Company (Fesco).
