QUETTA: The Balochistan Civil Service (BCS) officers announced a 3-days of protest against the merger of the Balochistan Secretariat Service (BSS) cadre on Thursday. Engineer Ayesha Zehri, Hazrat Wali Kakar, Muhammad Ali Durrani and others were also present on the occasion.

Addressing a press conference at the Quetta Press Club, a leader of BCS officers, Khudai Rahim Mirwani said that the Balochistan government has created an administrative crisis in the province by doing an unconstitutional act. Illegally, the BSS cadre has been merged into the BCS cadre, Mr. Mirwani lamented.

According to the officer of BCS group, Khudai Rahim Mirwani, the officers of the BSS cadre and BCS cadre pass the same exam, but merit and human psychology are also seen by the commission.

Later, they are assigned responsibilities according to their qualifications, he explained. Mirwani said that how can it be possible that a person who does not know the field, has no ability to run the administration, no training can be assigned the aforesaid tasks?

How can they be appointed in the field without a test? The BCS group officers have given the Balochistan government three days to reconsider the decision.  Administrative officers will protest across the province. A large number of Deputy Commissioners, Assistant Commissioners, Patwar Association and BCS cadre officers of various districts participated in the press conference.
