Karachi—A National Lobbying Delegation for Minority Rights called on Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Sindh chapter General Secretary and senator Taj Haider at his office at Karachi on Tuesday.
The National Lobbying Delegation for Minority Rights was led by Marylou Andrew and Vajeesh Pertab, Nixon and Irfan Nayyer were in the delegation. The delegation informed the PPP Senator of lack of implementation on 5 percent quota in jobs as reserved under the law.
The delegation informed that some departments are not even aware that it is mandatory for them to ensure the implementation of the reserved quota as per the resolution passed by the Sindh Assembly on Feb 6, 2015, which clearly states, “This House resolves that the Provincial Government ensure implementation of 5 percent quota reserved for minority in employment in government jobs in the Province.”
It is important for the 5 percent job quota for minorities to be implemented in order to help raise their social and financial status in the society, said Andrew.
