Bugti calls for debate on appointments in education department

QUETTA, May 20 (APP): Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Sarfraz Bugti called for a debate to develop a consensus on appointments in the education department carried out by the Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University.

Speaking on a point of order in the assembly session, Sarfraz Bugti stated that discussions held in the Assembly Hall would inform the entire province about the matter.

He said the house should set the criteria for the appointments to fulfill the vacant seats on merit and discourage selling of jobs.

Bugti said no compromise would be made on recruitment of teachers and ensured merit in the appointment process.
In the past, appointments in the health and education departments have been done on political basis, he added.

He said that measures were needed to bring reforms in the public sector including establishment of autonomous institutions and privatization of state owned enterprises to improve good governance.

He said the government should take bold decisions to improve the governance and eliminate the corruption in the province.
