QUETTA: The Balochistan Civil Service (BCS) officers staged a protest demonstration outside the office of the Chief Secretary on Tuesday. They strongly opposed the merger of the BSS cadre into the BCS cadre in the province and termed it a conspiracy against the officers and the administrative structure of the province.

The protesting officers announced a peaceful protest tomorrow (August 16) against this decision of the government. They termed the decision made by the outgoing CM Mir Quddus Bizenjo as illegal and unconstitutional.

The BCS Officers Action Committee also held a detailed meeting with the Secretary S&GAD and expressed their concerns that the merger of the BSS cadre into the BCS cadre is not only illegal but also unconstitutional.

The committee members said that only 4 out of 22 members have signed the report of the parliamentary committee, while the signature of the chairman is not there, despite the fact that S&GAD has repeatedly sent a summary of the same report, there is no legal status.

The officers said it was a contempt of court

The Committee on Administrative Officers of the Province clarified to the Secretary S&GAD that this also falls under the category of Contempt of Court. There are numerous decisions of the Supreme Court of Pakistan in this regard.

Recently, the Sindh High Court has also given a historic decision regarding the establishment of PMS.

Protesters urge CS Balochistan to undo the merger


The BCS Officers Action Committee has appealed to Chief Secretary Balochistan that this illegal action was taken by Chief Minister Balochistan at the request of a few officers, which is putting the province in an administrative crisis, so this illegal action should be stopped.

So that not only all the requirements of justice are fulfilled but also the civil service can be saved from further destruction. Administrative officers will take all possible measures for their legitimate rights, including the closure of all administrative and revenue offices of Balochistan, the protesting officers warned.
