According to a notification, the Chairman of the Sindh Higher Education Commission, Dr. Asim Hussain, will now work under Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah.

Earlier, the Sindh government raised reservations about the federal HEC canceling the two-year degree program and declared that the province would continue the degree program.

"The process of abolishing the two-year degree programs is an attack on provincial sovereignty," said Universities and Boards Advisor Nisar Ahmed Khuhro. Sindh opposes these federal HEC initiatives, and the two-year curriculum under the Universities Act will continue for universities in Sindh.
