“1097 people get jobs without tests and interviews”
According to a news report published in the Daily Baad-e-Shimal – one of GB’s most credible newspapers, senior minister of the GB cabinet, Wazir Jafar, has appointed as much as 1097 people at different positions in various government departments.
All of these appointees belong to his own electoral constituency, the newspaper reports. No tests and interviews were taken for hiring these people, the report alleges.
Most of the beneficiaries of this alleged massive irregularity are reported to be relatives and voters of the Senior Minister, who also acts as acting chief minister when Mehdi Shah is out of the region.
The reports also observes that as much as 3992 people have been employed by the PPP government in one department of the NAPWD.
In the past government functionaries and leaders have, however, accused the regional newspapers of spreading rumours against the PPP ministers.
Wazir Jafar has reportedly denied the allegations as baseless.
