Chief Secretary Balochistan, Abdul Aziz Uqaili on Thursday reiterated that merit and transparency would be ensured in all appointments in the province. The CS chaired a high-level meeting of all secretaries to review the pace of recruitment in Balochistan.

“All Secretaries were sworn in to ensure merit in the recruitment of 15000 employees”, Mr. Uqaili said. The top civilian officer of the province took to the social media network Twitter and reassured that appointments would be made on merit.

The CS Balochistan warned that strict action would be taken if any officer was found involved in nepotism and corruption. “This is my promise, recruitment in education, health and levies would be made on merit”, Mr. Uqailai concluded.

Skepticism about appointments in the education department

This assurance on behalf of the Chief Secretary of Balochistan has come after reports of gross merit violations in the process of recruitment in the province. Candidates have expressed skepticism about the process of recruitment through the Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University in education department. Some political parties have also addressed press conferences to convey their message about what they call the flawed process of recruitment through SBK.
