Sindh government and SPSC

June 27, 2012

I HAVE been suffering from grave injustice for over the last 10 years. Having been appointed as a primary school teacher in 2002 through proper procedure of recruitment by the Government of Sindh, I was dismissed without being given any reason by the local education officials.

Since then, I filed numerous applications, made personal requests to the officials concerned as well as had tedious paperwork for my reinstatement but to no avail.

In a 2007 appeal to the secretary education, Sindh, I requested for the same. The secretary education took interest and ordered an enquiry and instructed me to obtain reports from the district offices concerned regarding my reinstatement.

Going through the hectic procedure of acquiring those reports from the local officials, I finally managed to get hold of them.

The then district officer education (elementary), Shan M. Brohi, after receiving positive reports from his subordinates maintained that I should be reinstated without further delay.

However, the reinstatement order is yet to be issued despite a lapse of five years.

Recently, I turned to the Supreme Court against the local bureaucracy. Following the orders of the apex court, the Sindh Education Department asked for the opinion of the office of DO education (schools).

To my utter disappointment and surprise, he ruled against me. I do possess the documentary proof of my posting orders as well as the documents pertaining to the history of the case.

I request the secretary education, Sindh, to look into the matter and take notice of this discrimination I have been a victim of. My colleagues, who were appointed the same year, continue to serve in their respective capacities.


Creating hurdles

THIS is apropos of the letter ‘Keeping results on hold’ (June 12). It is a welcome attempt to highlight a crucial issue which is facing by all recommendees of Sindh Public Service Commission. The performance of the SPSC is not the issue; the real problem is that the Government of Sindh and departments concerned are creating hurdles in issuing offer orders for those recommended by the SPSC.

The commission’s work is to recommend candidates for the jobs and the real work of giving orders to those relates to the departments concerned of Sindh for which candidates are selected.

I was recommended as parole and probation officers (BPS 16) in Sindh reclamation and probation department in November 2011. I am still waiting for offer orders. I met with the minister for prison Sindh regarding offer orders who gave a diplomatic reply. Am I begging for my right? Why such injustice with the recommendees of SPSC and what lesson this government is trying to give to the youth of today through such an attitude?

I request the chief justice and the chief minister of Sindh to take stern action and issue offer orders to us.
