It is a routine that candidates join civil superior service with a colonial mindset. The moment this lot enters practical government life they get disillusioned and start showing their dissatisfaction about their low remuneration forgetting their sole and primary purpose of serving the public. Instead of thinking how to lessen the miseries experienced by the general public they start writing articles wailing about their financial conditions and finding justification for corruption. Pakistanis has already suffered a lot on account of indifferent and lethargic government servants unwilling to change themselves. It is high time public servants stopped crying about their pay packages and start delivering on a war-footing. LAEEQ AHMED BAJWA, Lahore, February 10.
