In September 2012, a sub-campus of the University of Sargodha (UoS) was established at the MA block of government degree college Mianwali. 7 years later, Punjab’s Higher Education Department (PHED) notified the establishment of UoM on August 29, 2019. However, UoM does not meet the basic requirements of a university. It does not even have a regular Vice-Chancellor (VC). Dr. Shabbar Attique, the VC of the University of Gujrat (UoG), has been overseeing the administrative matters of UoM. Dr. Shabbar visits UoM just once a month.
This is the fate of 2400 students that we’re talking about. These students have paid in millions for a degree but they might not even get the degree. How will the University compensate these students? Will the government do something to help the students?
