652

ISLAMABAD, Apr 22 (APP): The spokesperson to the President
Friday declared baseless and erroneous the reports in which it had
been alleged that more than 1500 employees were working at Aiwan e
Sadr.

In a statement, the spokesperson said in this regard, reports
appearing in different newspapers and magazines were factually false.

He said that the total strength of employees in public and
personal Secretariat was 823. The strength of employees of Grade 1 to 4 was in excess but since their remuneration was very low therefore they were not dismissed from service but instead their services were being utilized in sections where there was a shortage of employees, he added.
