ISLAMABAD - Zaridad Khan, former cook of the Curriculum Wing Hostel, which is now closed has been virtually put into another problem due to widespread nepotism in the Ministry of Education as his deadline to vacate the servant quarter ended on Saturday. Although he has packed his luggage yet he does not know where to go. After the closure of the Curriculum Wing Hostel of Ministry of Education located in sector H-9 due to the illegal seizure by Projects Wing the officials of the Curriculum Wing have asked its mess in charge to vacate the house also to adjust another employee of the same wing in the house. Zaridad Khan has been working in the ministry since March 20, 1996 as waiter on daily wages in Curriculum Wings Hostel. He was allotted Quarter No 2, Curriculum Wing on December 13, 2006 but after the closure of the hostel Zaridad Khan was asked to work for Curriculum Wing as Niab Qasid and the quarter was also allotted to Saif-ur-Rehman, Chowkidar of Curriculum Wing, on October 20. It has been learnt that Saif-ur-Rehman has already been allotted a room in Quarter No. 4 in the building. Still the Curriculum Wing officials have ordered Zaridad Khan to vacate the house to adjust another employee of the wing of the same grade without any transfer and justification. I have written applications to Education Minister Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani, Additional Secretary Muhammad Juman J Jamro saying that it is very difficult for me to vacate the house as I have no other place to go because I cannot afford private accommodation in meager salary of Rs.6000 in the Capital. I am also reluctant to go back to my hometown, Swabi, due to uncertain security situation in the area Khan said while telling about his plight. He also requested the ministry officials on humanitarian grounds the retention of the house at least for six months so that he could complete the treatment of his wife who, according to him, is under treatment but nobody listened his pleas. And forwarded the application to other officials for considerations in a typical bureaucratic style. Every one refused to meet him personally even Joint Education Advisor (JEA) Curriculum Wing Arif Majeed did not allow him to enter his room so that he could tell him his ordeal. The hostel is under direct supervision of Joint Education Advisor (JEA) Curriculum Wing Arif Majeed. Its ground floor has been occupied by Projects Wing, which was displaced from Shaheed-e-Milat Secretariat after the unfortunate incident of fire eruption there. He has borrowed some money to go back Swabi from his friend but still he has been waiting for a miracle to happen to save him from this situation.
