Sindh Governor Kamran Tissori has returned a bill to the provincial assembly regarding establishing Karachi Metropolitan University, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.
Raising objection to the bill passed by the Sindh Assembly, Governor Tissori sent it back unsigned.
The governor particularly objected to mayor or administrator’s becoming the pro vice chancellor of the university.
The last Sindh Assembly had passed 'The Karachi Metropolitan University Bill, 2022' earlier this month.
It may be mentioned here that the Sindh governor had dissolved the Sindh Assembly on the recommendation of Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on August 11 last. The governor signed the summary under Article 112(1) of the Constitution, which empowered him to dissolve the provincial assembly within 48 hours if advised by the chief minister.
Consequently, a caretaker government led by interim Chief Minister Justice (retd) Maqbool Baqar was sworn in August 19.
