Last week Balochistan government announced to probe degrees of 50,000 teachers which is an appreciable step. Provincial Secretary Education Mr. Saboor Kakar has taken a painstaking task of probing the already done corruption cases. But what about the recent corruption being done in Education Department or about to be done?
The Government of Balochistan Secondary Education Department announced 4,359 vacancies on November 23, 2014 and started giving appointment letters to all the qualified candidates by October 12, 2015.
Unfortunately, the concerned authorities distributed the appointment letters amongst the cherry-picked ones.
Being one of the candidates from the Zhob division on merit, I contend that candidates from District Sherani and fifteen candidates from district Zhob have not been given their due appointment letters. And, not to speak of only these twenty-five candidates but the future of approximately six hundred candidates is on stake throughout Balochistan. Rationally one might apprehend that the concerned almighties want to replace the lesser god’s children with their dear-ones.
Alarming point which creates skepticism is that the deprived candidates are advised to be patient: “Sabar Se Kaam Lo”. If it is not so, Mr Saboor Kakar is requested to answer that why these have-nots candidates are not being given their appointment letters though they are on merit? Ironically, the ones with lesser aggregate are enjoying their second salary by the end of 2015, and those on merit with higher aggregate are being deprived of their due rights.
“Say no to corruption,” a widely advertised and propagated slogan of the Government of Balochistan is a mere rhetoric.
