Karachi, November 28, 2014 (PPI-OT): Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has said that the role of Sindh Public Service Commission has not been reduced but it would be strengthened further. “It is an autonomous body and we never interfere into its affairs.”
The chief minister reacting to the media report said that the government has intention to shrink the powers and role of the Sindh Public Service Commission. “The SPSC Commission is an autonomous body and all the recruitment from grade B-17 and above are made through it,” he added.
He further said that the government departments are only authorized to make recruitment from grade B-1 to B-16 after following proper procedure such as invitation of applications through newspapers, formation of selection committee and then selection of the required staff in a transparent manner purely on merit.
Referring to the press conference of former MQM minister, the chief minister said that PPP government had imposed ban on new recruitments as soon as it came into power. “The ban was lifted last month, after that only constables have been appointed on district basis on merit,” he added.
The chief minister said that now the MQM was making these issues unnecessarily when it has quit the coalition, otherwise they had never raised these issues.
