Qaim admits bogus recruitments in ongoing PPP regime.
KARACHI -- While admitting that large scale bogus and fake recruitment have been made in Sindh, Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Monday has directed the education department to identify bogus and fake recruitments made on district level during the ongoing tenure of the PPP government. The probe will not cover the bogus and illegal recruitments during the last tenure when Pir Mazharul Haq was heading the ministry.
"This would be easy to trace out if you go through the payroll made by AG Sindh" said Qaim where presiding over a meeting here at CM House Karachi.
The meeting was attended by Senior Minister for Education Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, Minister for Finance Syed Murad Ali Shah, Principal Secretary to CM Alamudin Bullo ,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.
"I have the reports that some of the education department officers on district level are involved in fake and bogus recruitments" he said. On this Senior Minister for Education Mr Nisar Khuhro and Secretary Education Fazal 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 appointment has 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.
The chief minister also directed secretary Finance to hold a meeting with AG Sindh and get the copies of payroll to the secretary education for inquiry within three days and report him.
Giving details of CIDA the senior minister said that the objective of the project was to strengthen teacher training institutes by improving their physical infrastructure facilities, support inservice and preresource teacher training programmes, provision of teaching resource kits and assistance in curriculum revision.
