The university was facing a deficit of Rs 30 million which was likely to increase further. Similarly, the severe shortage of administrative officers and senior and qualified faculty also existed in the university and even the very basic academic programs were not offered there.

Resultantly, a number of academic programs were started whereas the process of appointments and promotions was also completed on the basis of merit.
Prof Anwar-ul-Hassan pointed out the allegations appeared in a quarter of media regarding the recruitment process and stated that he and his team believed in transparency and impartiality.

He continued that there was no truth in the aforementioned allegations leveled by some candidates and other quarters while there will be no compromise on merit and transparency in the university, adding that the false allegations were nothing more than a baseless media trial while the university accepted full responsibility for its fair practices in the recruitment process.
