Politicising bureaucracy

March 13, 2018


IN any government set-up bureaucrats are part of the state. Dragging bureaucracy into politics is a dangerous precedent.

Political parties at times make bureaucrats party to dirty politics which will eventually harm the state itself.

Playing ‘our bureaucrats’ and ‘their bureaucrats’ is not good for the aspirants who wish to join the prestigious civil service. This will lead to the politicisation of the bureaucracy and lack of motivation.

Political parties must end this for the sake of Pakistan.
