Saidudero, Pir Bux Bhutto and Naundero union council’s Supervisors Riaz Bhutto, Ghulam Sarwar Dayo and Abdul Rahman Supro will also be issued show cause notices for their alleged involvement in making these teachers ghost employees.
It is alleged that relevant head masters and supervisors charge from every single ghost teacher Rs5000 to 8000 per month to remain absent from their duties as they would take care of their absence. While talking to media, TEO Qazi Sardar said that it is now in the interest of the absconding primary teachers to resume their government duties forthwith or else they would loose their jobs because no absenteeism would ever be tolerated henceforth.
