Chitral Times Report

The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has constituted a high level committee to examine the issues of illegal appointments in Khyber Pakhtukhwa Workers Welfare Board (WWB) and take  appropriate legal actions against the delinquents. According to a notification issued by Secretary Welfare Board Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the committee consists of Minister for Labour, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Secretary Labour, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Secretary Worker Welfare Board, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Director General, Employees Social Security Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It merits mention here that National Accountability Bureau (NAB), in a letter addressed to the Secretary Labour, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had requested him to constitute a committee to look into the issue of appointments made in WWB since 2007. In its letter NAB has pointed out that Ex-Provincial Minister for Labour Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had misused his authority in appointments in WWB. During an enquiry into the illegal appointments in WWB, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, NAB has observed that numerous individuals in various posts from Class-IV to BPS-18 had been appointed against the relevant rules governing appointments in WWB which include issues of age, deficient qualification, surplus appointment, irregular promotion, violation of criteria prescribed in advertisement etc.

            Meanwhile, the Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has categorically said that the demands of the contract employees of WWB were totally undue and illegal, and as such cannot be granted adding that their contracts will only be extended if they qualify the prescribed screening test as per rules. He said that those employees were trying to blackmail the Provincial Government through protest and demonstration, but the Provincial Government will stick to its policy of merit and principled stance on the issue.
