Dr Ahsan, the general secretory of Fapuasa complained and said about this situation that HEC always neglected the universities of Sindh, in scholarships, research and travel aids and development budgets. He also criticized HEC as, from the formation of HEC, it always distinguished Sindh in the division of aids and resources.

In the section of foreign scholarships, the HEC announced 200 French and German scholarships in the need-based scholarship programme. These schemes included undergraduate and postgraduate students of 10 selected universities from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Balochistan but none of any university of Sindh was included.

The representator of the teachers of Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET), Dr Arshad Memon mentioned that foreign scholarships provide chances to the students to study in western developed countries, whereas the HEC scholarships provide the students with the opportunities to study in less developed countries.

In this way students more likely wanted to pick up foreign scholarships as compare to the HEC scholarship. Shabbir Khuharo, civil engineering lecturer at MUET said that it would be very good if German and French scholarships are given to the students of Sindh because only Brunei and Hong Kong offer scholarships to the students of Pakistan including Sindh. He said that this action should be perform as HEC is somewhat bound with different boundaries and ropes like guarantees and post-qualification service.

As far as prime minister’s reimbursement scheme is concerned, the complete cost of postgraduate education of the students of somewhat poor or under developed areas of the country will be carry out by the federal government. It is a great idea for educating poor and needy students of Sindh, Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, FATA, Malakand, Kohistan, South Punjab, Dera Ismail Khan. Dr Khan Harijan, wrote a letter to the executive director of the HEC, Professor Dr Mukhtar Ahmad that a major part of the students (about 95%) of backward areas of Sindh study in MUET, Jamshoro.

This letter was written in the scenario that HEC covered all areas of Sindh but excluded Karachi and Jamshoro. This act of HEC disappointed a huge strength of the students of Sindh University so far. A student of MSC natural sciences, Amir Wachuho expressed his depression as, some of the students tried to get the aid but it was an unsuccessful approach, as we were told that the students of Sindh University are not included in the list for the HEC scholarship.

Apart from the entire depressing situation for the students of Sindh, the HEC was not available to give their comments about it. It was informed by Dr Memon that the members of association of Sindh held a teleconference and they demanded an inquiry of HEC scholarship programme to seek the issues and solve them. The Fapuasa showed lust to the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to take a notice of unfairness of HEC.
