Dilatory tactics


Hashim Abro

Our bureaucracy and technocracy is infamous for its dreadful dilatory tactics, administrative inertia, obfuscation and procrastination, coupled with various forms of bureaucratic and technocratic harassment. It is evident that our retired and rehired lot, which has inbuilt penchant for dilatory or diluting tactics or a combination of both, is ineffective and passive in the framing of the desired rules such as Employees Service Rules, regulations and despicably dormant in the implementation of the already approved Employees Medical Rules, among others. They delight in diversionary tactics, perpetrating injustice and doing wrong with the employees around. This inhuman and anti-employees attitude of the retired rehired in a few federal and provincial, not many, organizations have created ill will and unrest.
Although they all know that dilatory tactics violate the Constitution’s provisions regarding effective service delivery and good governance but even then they adopt this horrendous policy of discrimination and dilatory tactics either to settle the score, bully the officers and staff or maintain their supremacy. Is there anyone God-fearing in power and authority in this country to free the employees of too few public sector organizations from this despicable irrational, illogical bureaucratic or technocratic quagmire created by a sadist few? Is there anyone in this country at the highest destination to remind and sensitize our people in power and authority, in particular, duffers, duds and dunce headed placed in the prime administrative position with this noble verse from the glorious Quran ( 22: 19) which reads as, “ Thus they will you the lie regarding what ye say, then ye can neither avert ( the doom) nor obtain help. And whoso among you doeth wrong, We shall make him taste great torment.”
