KARACHI: Flouting Supreme Court and Election Commission’s directives regarding reshuffling in bureaucracy, the caretaker government in Sindh has appointed some junior officers as deputy commissioners while grade 18 officers have been given additional charges of commissioners.
Taking notice of complaints registered by some opposition parties, the Election Commission of Pakistan had ordered the Sindh government to remove 65 commissioners and deputy commissioners appointed on political grounds. However, the government removed officials only in 27 districts.
Sources said that the blue eyed junior officers were not only promoted but also appointed on top posts, brushing aside Election Commission recommendations while violating Supreme Court orders by appointing juniors officers of grade 18 of grade 19 posts.
The fact is gauged from the postings of Junior Officers Umar Farooq Billu who has not only been appointed Deputy Commissioner Larkana but the gentleman has also taken charge of grade 20 post of commissioner.
Though, Deputy Commissioner Larkana Assadullah Abru has been replaced, he has been accommodated in the same district by appointing as Additional Commissioner.
Captain Anwarul Haq, though a junior officers in Khairpur, has been posted as Deputy Commissioner Khairpur.
