One thought on “HEC issue to end up in the Supreme Court”

  1. HEC’s devolution is a remarkable step of the current democratic government. The claim that HEC is widely recognized as a highly successful institution is a flighty statement with no truth to it.

The fact that it pays some favored class of academicians much more actually shows how terribly wrong the commission has been in its approach. It is hoped that the devolution of the HEC will make things much better in future. However there is democratic government in the country and will not take any decision against the whims of people. Govt has already said that all the stake holders would be taken on board before any decision. There should be no hullabaloo over it. What would be in favor of masses would be taken.
