PESHAWAR, Sept 15 (APP): Federal Minister for Postal
Services Maulana Ameer Zaman here Friday said that problems
of the employees associated with postal services would be addressed on priority by utilizing all resources.
Addressing a ceremony held here at GPO, he said,
post office being a social welfare department was delivering
services at its best. Over 40,000 employees were working in
that government institution, whereas the livelihood of over 4
million people was associated with it.
He directed the department’s officers to present
feasible suggestions for introducing reforms in the department to
make it more welfare oriented.
Maulana Ameer Zaman said he would approach the federal
government to release the frozen funds of the department. He said
he would strive to release salaries of the employees from the
national kitty as presently the salaries were given to them from
the postal service fund.
He said he would not allow anyone to indulge in corrupt
practices and he would not only take steps for the welfare of the
employees, but also addressed their problems.
Their problems regarding upgradation and uniform would be taken
up with quarters concerned at the head office.
Chief Post Master General Abdul Sattar Khattak, Post Master General
Zafar Ali Malik, Additional Director General Naseer Khan and Deputy Post Master General Rasheedullah Kundi were also present on the occasion.
