Karachi: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has directed the education department to identify bogus and fake recruitments made on district level during the on-going tenure of PPPP government.
“This would be easy to trace out if you go through the payroll made by AG Sindh,” he said while presiding over a meeting of education department attended by Senior Minister for Education Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, Minister for Finance Syed Murad Ali Shah, Additional Chief Secretary (Development) Waseem Ahmed, Secretary Education Fazal Pechuho, Secretary W&IS Syed Mumtaz Ali Shah, Secretary Finance Sohial Rajput and other senior officers.
The chief minister said that he had reports that some of the education department officers on district level were involved in fake and bogus recruitments. On this Minister for Education Khuhro and Secretary Education Pechuho agreed to the chief minister.
Secretary Education said that some district officers of education department in connivance with the officials of education department were involved in this racket. “They create fake IDs to make bogus appointments. Some of these cases have been unearthed with solid evidences,” he said.
On this the chief minister said that since he has taken over as chief minister from June 2013 he had imposed ban on recruitment. This ban was lifted about six months ago but no appointments have not been made so far. “Therefore, get a payroll copy from the AG Sindh of 2013 and then compare it with the payrolls of 2014 and 2015. The surplus staff or the bogus appointments would be very easy to trace out and then take action against the involved officers. The action would not be less than dismissal from services,” he directed.
