CSS quota for south Punjab

THE south Punjab is considered to be backward, ill-educated and middle class-populated area where about 70 per cent people are rural inhabitants.

All the people of the area, expect the elected government members, want special attention to the region for its economic development.

They want to spend better lives as most of the people of the southern Punjab are living below the poverty line.

The poor people of this region have been ignored. They have a right to compete in Central Superior Services examinations.

However, they have to compete with the Punjab aspirants. As a matter of fact, the education being offered to the people in central Punjab is far better than that of southern Punjab.

A major difference between southern and central Punjab is that one can see the difference in marks obtained by candidates in CSS and other examinations.

I request the political leaders from southern Punjab to sit in National and Provincial Assemblies to raise this question for the children of their voters.

They should demand a CSS quota for them, like the Sindh province, which is divided into Sindh rural and Sindh urban and both the regions have separate quota in the CSS.

Otherwise, the poorly educated people who become graduates after a long struggle would fell prey to inferiority complex.
