Creation of new unnecessary posts

ISLAMABAD: Unrest and frustration are increasing among Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) officials and students as the QAU current management has been not only failed to maintain the university’s good repute, but has also has taken some steps creating a general impression of funds’ embezzlement.

During the tenure of incumbent vice chancellor (VC), the QAU management appointed four persons against high salaries setting an example of nepotism and increasing the financial burden of the university.

According to reliable sources, the QAU management recently created a post of Assistant Registrar Legal (ARL) in the university and appointed Samiullah, brother-in-law of Registrar Dr Shafiqur Rehman, as ARL. They said Samiullah was appointed on contract in the university and later post of ARL was created to accommodate him.

A QAU officer requesting not to be named told Daily Times that he had never heard about post of ARL in any university. He said in fact the management wanted to accommodate the said person and created a post for this purpose. He said the management appointed him after meeting all the requirements and it is hard to prove any wrongdoing. He said if FIA investigated the matter many cases of embezzlement would be unveiled.

Dean of a department on condition of anonymity said six months ago the management appointed a retired colonel on contract basis as Campus Manager against approximately Rs 100,000 per month salary. It is wastage of money as there is no need to appoint a campus manager because permanent employees are capable to handle the campus, he added.

A professor said QAU had become a joke. He said the management appointed Sabheeh as Planning Director (PD) almost one year ago. He said he had never heard about such a post in any university. The QAU was doing well in past so it is strange that why the VC appointed a PD on contract basis against Rs 100,000 per month salary.

An officer of examination department said in the past management appointed Zia Akhtar as Treasurer on contract basis and he is also getting almost Rs 100,000 per month. He said previously Controller Examination was working as Treasurer but the management created the post and put extra burden on funds. He said QAU VC had taken some steps that not only tarnished the university image but also embezzlement of the funds could not be ruled out.Daily Times.
