The verdict of the Supreme Court of Pakistan finally came on the surface declaring the results of the CCE-2013-2016 held under Sindh Public Service Commission null and void. The decision made by a three-judge bench of the apex court is intended at consolidating the sloppy system meritorious and making the SPSC’s delivery credible and be it certainly so. The SC decision is doubtlessly a flaming blow to the dreams of qualifiers and breeze simultaneously for the failed one. But the matter does not end here and, there are many questions taking place in one’s mind. The suo moto case was filed in October 2016 regarding the eligibility of Chairman and members of Sindh Public Service Commission and , however, the decision has hit the destiny of only those candidates who qualified the examination. How will they be compensated the loss which was made through resigning from the job to join a new station for their better future? Who will get them and their poor family relieved from the anguish after seeing their future at stake.
Therefore, Chief Justice of the top court must set precedent in punishing the real responsible of such misappropriations. The decision of cancelling the CCE results is in favour of the nation at large interest but there should be comprehensive strategy to extinguish the cause rather than effect. Other institutions like NAB and anti-corruption also come ahead to arrest the criminals who caused perversion in the main competitive exam of the province through which the supreme talent comes in administration and turns to be backbone at the service of the society.
