SMBBMU’s Director Planning working despite his contract ends

LARKANA: The aged Director, Planning, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University (SMBBMU), Larkana, is still working despite end of his second six months contract 21 days ago.

According to A report, 75-year-old Noorullah Malik, instead of stepping down after expiry of his contract, is still reluctant to leave the chair of SMBBMU Planning Director. Registrar Prof Sikander Mughal wrote a letter to the Governor Sindh for approving his contract appointment, being the Chancellor of the university at that time.

According to rules, without his approval no retired person can be appointed but the reply is still awaited hence Prof Mughal has refused to issue contract notification of the director and then additional registrar Dr Hassan Shaikh issued the same extending another six months period of the requisite director which has also expired on November 20 despite this the fact he is still continuing which shows that his contract period will once again be extended third time which will deprive the other eligible highly qualified youth of their right. Sindh government has been urged by the civil society and medical experts of Larkana to take notice of the mismanagement in the SMBBMU and take action.

Meanwhile, with the approval of Sindh Chief Minister, Dr Ali Akbar Bhutto, has been appointed as controller of examinations for four years at SMBBMU for which notification has been issued on November 23, 2015 by Section Officer, Pir Bux Junejo, of the Chief Minister’s Secretariat (Universities Section). It must be remembered here that Dr. Bhutto was posted previously as Director Human Resources and since last 11 months, he was working as incharge examination controller.
