Reward for merit-based admissions: Principal Aitchison College fired from his job

In reward for admitting students on merit basis, Dr Agha Ghazanfar was dismissed from the post of principal of Aitchison College, Lahore, by the Board of Governors.

The crime he committed was to deny admissions to the grandsons of Speaker Ayaz Sadiq, ex-PM Yousuf Raza Gillani, Mian Mansha and former governor Punjab Makhdoom Ahmed Mahmood, despite the fact that they had failed to pass the entry test.

Dr Agha Ghazanfar’s revelations in ARY News program ‘Comment’ hosted by Amir Ghouri, has opened a new pandora box.

Dr Agha had already spoken on record that he has been under pressure to admit the grandsons of some of the most influential figures of the country, despite their failure in test.

The contract Dr Agha Ghazanfar signed is valid until 2018, however a meeting of the Aitchison College’s Board of Governors was called and he was dismissed from principal’s post.

    It is a shame what has happened and I hope SC could take a notice of this and line up those responsible for it – even if that includes shameless speaker of assembly who is trying to validate his election victory.

    It seems that the Aitchison College is going down the road taken by the Steel Mils and the PIA. The ruling class seems determined to self-destruct.

  • Mohammed Sattar

    If it is found that he was sacked for this reason then the board of governors must must all be sent home so that in future no one will repeat something like this again.

  • Akbar

    aitchison board of governors is the ultimate elitists ka tola who want admissions to be based on kinship and not merit. Shameful that these bigwigs pressurized the principal to grant admission to their stupid kids.
