Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi chief Engr Hafiz Naeemur Rehman on Wednesday strongly condemned the Sindh government over what he called corrupt practices in the education and literacy department.
The JI leader expressed these views after a meeting with a delegation of affected candidates at Idara Noor-e-Haq, the JI Karachi headquarters. On the occasion, the delegation told the JI leader that qualified candidates belonging to Karachi were deprived of jobs on various pretexts, while PST and JST jobs were being offered against heafty amounts of bribe money.
The delegation members said that examinations were held in September 2021 for the posts.
The names of successful candidates has already been listed but officials at the provincial education and literacy department were creating obstacles in offering job letters in order to open gates for corruption and bribery, said the delegation.
Engr Hafiz Naeemur Rehman said that the PPP has been neglecting Karachi since a long ago.
The urban youth in the province were deprived of public sector jobs, he said, adding that now only 6,000 out of the total 50,000 jobs were allocated for Karachi and that too were denied on various pretexts.
It should be a matter of grave concern and shame for the government in Sindh, he said. The JI leader demanded of the government to shun the policy of neglect and injustice to Karachi and Karachiites.
