PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Shah Farman on Thursday expressed his annoyance at the syndicate of Gomal University for not taking seriously the recommendations of an inquiry committee regarding merit, financial discipline and administrative affairs.

A statement issued here said that Mr Farman presided over the 12th session of the varsity’s Senate here at the Governor’s House where he deplored that the university syndicate was not taking the decisions of Senate seriously and decisions were being interpreted inappropriately by the syndicate through unfair justifications.

He said that the inquiry report was sent to the university syndicate to determine whether justice was done, but the role of syndicate remained highly deplorable in this regard.

Mr Farman warned that no compromise would be made on merit and financial disciplines in institutions of higher education and directed the Gomal University to implement the recommendations of inquiry report.

Later, the Senate approved budget for 2019-20 for the varsity where MPA Ehtisham Javed Akbar, VC Prof Dr Mohammad Sarwar and other members were also present.
