Karachi: Federal Minister for Education Sardar Aseff Ahmed Ali has said that Higher Education Commission (HEC) is carrying out verification of (parliamentarians’) degrees in violation of the Constitution.
Talking to Geo News, the Education Minister said it is the Education Ministry that is authorized to undertake the review of the degrees.
He said the HEC should have sought permission from the Education Minister prior to embarking on the exercise of verification of the parliamentarians’ degrees.
“A high level commission, also comprising members of the Law Ministry, will be constituted to carry out review of the HEC verified degrees,” Sardar Aseff told Geo News.
He said he is accountable to the parliament not to HEC.
