College with one-man faculty starts admissions Government Degree College for Boys Kundian Mianwali

Mianwali: The newly-built Government Degree College for Boys, Kundian, has started its operations by offering admissions to first year and third year students in science disciplines – but without even a single teacher on its faculty to impart education to either science or arts students.

A BS-17 economics lecturer was recently appointed principal of the college and he alone constitutes the faculty of this degree college. Students as well as their parents have expressed concern over the situation, urging education bosses to ensure provision of teaching staff to this newly-built college at the earliest.

The college faces numerous other problems like absence of electricity and drinking water and paints a very grim picture of the high priority our successive governments would attach to this vital sector.

The provincial education department started constructing five degree colleges in the district in July 2005, including the Rs33.50 million Government Degree College for Boys, Kundian. The 24-month projects, however, could only near their completion in not less than five years.

On repeated requests made by DO (Colleges) Ahmed Hassan Khan Niazi and the then DCO, Waseem Ajmal Chaudhry, however, the buildings department handed over the 'incomplete' building of the college to the former official on Oct 30, 2009.

Soon after the building was handed over to the DO (Colleges), he started correspondence with the Punjab higher education secretary to grant/sanction the schedule of new expenditures (SNE), including hiring of principal and teaching and ministerial staff and release of running fund to make the college functional.

A principal was, however, appointed belatedly in August 2010 and he was tasked with making the college functional – without recruiting any teaching and ministerial staff at the outset. It was also ironical that a BS-17 lecturer of Piplan college, Iqbal Hussain Kundi, was appointed principal against a BS-19 vacancy, owing to his political connections. As a face-saving move, sources added, the higher education department was likely to promote the principal to BS-18 to avoid the emerging criticism.

Principal Kundi, however, ventured on inviting admission forms from students for enrollment to FSc and BSc classes – patently without caring for the future of the enrolled students.

The college is still working without electricity after thieves stole power supply meter and cables soon after installation because no security guard had been deployed there. Also, the building has not been provided with the facility of potable water supply.

Last but not the least, the education department had purchased furniture and fixtures, laboratory equipment, library books, computers etc. for all the five under-construction colleges two years ago and dumped the goods at the offices of project directors or storerooms available to them without foreseeing the impact of dumping on the utilisation of these articles after an indefinite time period.

The principal of Government Degree College for Boys, Liaqatabad, was project director for the Government Degree College for Boys, Kundian, and all the equipment and ancillary material is supposedly lying with him. One could imagine the impact of dumping on the quantity and quality of the equipment for such a long span of time. Rusting and gradual wear and tear will definitely have taken its toll on these goods.

Reservations about faulty purchases of material also surfaced at that time, demanding high-level inquiries into the buying process. However, nothing concrete step was taken to shed these reservations which otherwise suggest that procurement process was not wholly transparent.

Mohammad Ramzan, a resident of Kundian, said that they wanted seeing a college running in their locality but the education department had done injustice to the local people by not providing adequate number of teachers to the new college.

Ghulam Rasool Kloo, a student, said that he and his friends were happy to see a college in their hometown but what would be the fate of hundreds of students who would get themselves enrolled in a college having no faculty at all.

D.O (Colleges) Ahmed Hassan Khan Niazi was optimistic that the shortage of academic and ministerial staff would be met in the coming days and students would be getting proper education in the Kundian college.

He said that buildings of the remaining four colleges were still incomplete and these institutions would become functional in due course of time. Dawn
