The All Pakistan Universities BPS Teachers Association’s president Dr. Sami Ur Rahman and GS Dr. Imtiaz Ahmad yesterday had a detailed meeting with the Executive Director Dr. Shaista Sohail at HEC Islamabad.

The president expressed that the BPS teachers are quite disappointed about the lack of progress on the approval of the BPS draft statutes. The breaching of the signed agreement for resolving the matter by mid of May has annoyed the situation and the APUBTA members shall come back for a sit-in in front of the HEC headquarters on June 15. That shall be continued until resolving the issues as we may not be able to more believe in fake agreements.
The GS added that the deprivation and discrimination are no more tolerable for the BPS teachers in presence of the clear provision of equal fundamental rights of promotion in the HEC ordinance.
The HEC is not authorized to stop the granted provision and create a discriminatory environment in universities among the different cadres of employees. How Commission has approved promotion statutes for TTS and for HEC administration under section 10, and 12(2)? The Executive Director assured that HEC has fully understood the matter and shall soon find a favorable solution to resolve the longstanding issue. She requested for calling off the protest and assured that Insha Allah a favorable solution shall be sorted out by the committee on June 10, which shall be submitted for consideration by the commission. She also suggested a two pages introduction of the problem with the solution for better understanding the discrimination and deprivation.
