Govt believes in the merit policy, promotions have nothing to do with provincialism, says Nawaz Sharif
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that the government believes in merit for recruitment and promotions of civil servants.
Responding to a point raised by opposition leader Syed Khurshid Ahmed Shah regarding favouritism in promotion of senior civil servants in the Assembly session on Tuesday, the PM said the merit is our principle and we are following the policy of merit. “We have to do justice with the nation without any discrimination,” he said. “We never considered the angle of provincialism in these matters.”
Nawaz Sharif said he has not yet received any detail into recommendations of the promotion board for promotion of civil servants from grade 21 to 22. He assured the house and the leader of the opposition that he will minutely look into the matter and share the matter with the leader of the opposition Syed Khursheed Shah.
Allaying the opposition leader’s concerns, Nawaz Sharif assured him that if was any injustice, it will be corrected.
