A meeting of security-related staff was held under the chair of Sindh University (SU) Vice-Chancellor Professor (Meritorious) Dr. Muhammad Siddique Kalhoro, in which the issues pertaining to the security of the varsity were discussed. It was decided to further improve the security system before re-opening the University of Sindh Jamshoro.

The Vice-Chancellor on the occasion directed the security guards to gently behave with teachers, officers and students in order to leave the best impression on them.

The meeting was attended by the Registrar Dr. Ghulam Muhammad Bhutto, Additional Registrar & Director Campus Security Abdul Majeed Panhoor, Director Students Affairs Dr. Muhammad Younis Leghari and Security Officer Kashif Ali Narejo and all security jamadars and guards.

The security staff has been asked to further improve the security of the institution and perform their duties with all-out responsibility. One of the objectives of the meeting was the Vice-Chancellor’s direct interaction with the lower staff/ security guards in order to enquire about their immediate problems and make them feel ownership of the institution and improve the security of the university.

Speaking on the occasion, the SU Vice-Chancellor Professor (Meritorious) Dr. Muhammad Siddique Kalhoro said that security guards were working in an important higher education institution like the University of Sindh so they could give the benefit of education to their children because he said, the admission quota was reserved for their children in the varsity.

He said that small employees should not compromise on children’s education. “If any employee’s child is educated, his next generation will be affluent”, he said.

He said that it was not a bad thing to demand promotions but the main thing was that the security guards should perform their duties with complete sincerity and spend all their energy on the education of their children.

The Vice-Chancellor further said that many scholarships were being offered by the University of Sindh, from which the children of lower staff could also benefit. He said that the security guards also had the facility of enjoying leave, but for it, they should fill the required proforma before going on it so that the alternatives could be deployed at their place.
