Lahore, Dec.15 (ANI): The King Edward Medical College in Lahore has been charged with having bent its rules in 1991 to admit former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter Mariam Nawaz.
Pakistan People's Party leader Munawwar Anjum leveled this charge against Sharif on Sunday in the wake of Sharif calling for the resignation of the Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar for pushing his daughter's admission to a medical college.
"Perhaps Mr. Sharif can make such demands because the method he used to get Mariam into the KEMC was more suave," Anjum said, talking exclusively to Daily Times.
Mariam was a grade-B student in matric and FSc and scored 580 out of 850, and 767 out of 1,100 in the two exams in 1989 and 1991 respectively, he said.
"Clearly, she did not qualify for admission to the KEMC on open merit. She was admitted to the Army Medical College in Rawalpindi and was migrated after only a month to the KEMC, which she left without completing her degree," Anjum said.
He said it was 'almost comical' that having done something similar, the Sharifs were pointing fingers at the chief justice. (ANI)
