CDGK education dept defies recruitment ban
Karachi: The education department of the City District Government Karachi (CDGK) has issued over 400 appointment letters mainly for non-teaching posts in government schools despite a ban on recruitment and transfers in government departments, it has been learnt.
Moreover, the quarters concerned have alleged that these jobs have been offered on the basis of political considerations.
The ban on new employments was imposed to discourage out-of-turn appointments and transfers in Sindh government departments. However, owing to reasons best known to the authorities concerned, around 450 appointment letters have been issued in the CDGK education department, allegedly to workers and supporters of the coalition partners of the provincial government, sources said.
It is also worth mentioning here that, earlier, authorities, including the offices of the education minister, had denied reports of these appointments. Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazhar Ul Haq said that only offer orders were issued "to streamline things, so that it would take less time to release appointment orders; the latter, however, is conditional to the lifting of the ban."
In September, the authorities release offer orders from grades 1 to 15, without conducting any formal proceedings; these posts were never advertised, sources informed. The letter, which is typed, contains the hand-written name of the candidate, the father's name, the Computerised National Identity Card number, and name of the place where the candidate is supposed to report, they said. The letters are signed by the CDGK Executive District Officer (EDO) Education, Ibrahim Kumbhar
The education department has allegedly issued these appointment letters for the posts of Naib-Qasid, lab-attendant, lab assistant, sweeper, Chowkidar, junior clerk, assistant clerk and computer operator. However, no written tests were conducted for the posts of assistant clerk and computer operator, sources said, adding that no deceased or son quota is offered, and all appointments were allegedly made on the grounds of political affiliations.
They further said that appointment orders with the postings were issued from Monday, and the candidates were trying to get the jobs at their favourite places, instead of being deployed at the assigned locations.
Students protest against fee hike

Under the auspices of Shagird Ittehad, they started the protest rally from the Islamia College, which turned into a big demonstration outside the Badin Press Club after passing through the roads of Badin. The students staged a sit-in there for more than an hour.
The rally was led by student leader Shahid Jokhio. Addressing the students, Shahid said the massive increase in fee in a year was unfair and a huge burden on their parents. The students demanded of the governor of Sindh to solve the issue before the closure of the submission date of admission fee. The news
