PU professor to head Chitral University project

CHITRAL: A professor of Peshawar University, Dr Badshah Munir Bukhari, will act as the project director of the newly-established University of Chitral.

A notification in this regard will be issued soon, sources in the KP government told ChitralToday.

It may be noted that in the fiscal year 2016-17 the provincial government had planned to set up a new university in Chitral. Since then, work on the university has been progressing in phases with the latest one being the hiring of the PD. Before this, a summary containing the names of Dr Ismail Wali from Chitral, Prof Mumtaz Hussain from Swat and another professor had been sent to Chief Minister Pervez Khattak.

However, the chief minister rejected the summary and sought another list of names. Later, the name of Dr Jamil Chitrali was sent to the chief minister which was also not approved.

Finally, the name of Prof Bukhari was presented to the CM which he approved as the PD. It may be noted that Dr Bukhari has worked on different key posts at the Peshawar University.–Karimullah

    Proud of you Badshah sb, you are pride of chitral in many respect.your biography will be a bestsellor one day.
    a student of yours in the first decade of 21st century.

  2. Great decision indeed. Doctor sb is not only a well qualified and competent scholar but also got a vast experience in the relevant field in particular with regard to administration and management side. His appointment as PD is a welcome move and hopefully will prove to be something very handy in translating our dreams of University of Chitral into reality. We wish Dr. Sb best of luck and hope that he will leave no stone unturned in turning our dreams into reality as future of Chitral is attached with the said University.

  3. What drives such decisions is unknown. Why a qualified Chitrali cannot handle a position of responsibility?
