The house expressed grief and sorrow over the sudden demise of Dr. Aftab Ahmed Charan, Assistant Professor, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Sindh University Campus Dadu due to Covid-19.
Pro Vice Chancellors and Focal Persons of all SU additional campuses, Deans of all Faculties, SU Registrar, relevant Administrative Heads, all Academic Heads, Professors, Learned Members of SU Syndicate, Members of the Academic Council itself and other relevant staff participated in the meeting.

Congratulating all, especially the SU IT team upon this collective team-effort, Vice Chancellor Dr. Burfat said ” We have been able to save one precious year of the poor students in the face of all odds. This has become possible only because of guidance by HEC Islamabad and by across-the-board support and cooperation of faculty and administration of the Varsity”. ” Together we rock” is what the Vice Chancellor said as he profusely thanked all to conclude the meeting.
