Mariam Nawaz deprived three candidates of admission in medical colleges
ISLAMABAD: PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif wants CJ Abdul Hameed Dogar to resign over allegation that his daughter received undue favour for admission in a private medical college, but he is yet to offer an apology for his own daughter Mariam actually receiving such favour for enrolment in a public sector medical college in 1991, according to a report published in the Weekly Pulse.
That year, Mariam Nawazs marks, 765 out of 1,000, in F Sc were too low to get admission in any public sector medical college in Punjab, and the minimum provincial merit was 803/1,000 at Quaid-e-Azam Medical College, Bahawalpur.
Mariam wanted admission in King Edward Medical College (KEMC) in hometown Lahore. But with her father as PM and uncle, Shahbaz Sharif, as CM, how could it be that her wish was not realized, the report said. She was first admitted to Army Medical College Rawalpindi, in 1991, and within a couple of months, was migrated to King Edward in clear violation of Migration rules. Mariams deprived not just one but two candidates competing for admission in public sector medical colleges. If this was not enough, investigations reveal that one professor at KEMC, Dr Shahnaz Javed of Physiology Dept was transferred from the college for not allowing an illegal increase in her attendance percentage to meet her attendance shortage for lectures in that subject.Online
