First ‘transparent’ written test of our so-called ‘transparent’ setup which were held on September 1, 2013 at Liaquat Gymnasium, Sports Complex, Islamabad were very far from transparent. This test was taken by National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA). The test was so poorly organized and managed. Candidates were whispering and cheating openly, there were only 3-4 invigilators for 4000 to 5000 candidates who had appeared for this test for the posts of Inspector, Assistant Director, Deputy Director and Director NACTA.

Majority of the candidates were unable to even appear in the test as the authority called candidates telephonically just 12 hours before the test from across the country, while there was only one test centre in Islamabad. I also appeared for the test for the post of Assistant Director but was disappointed after seeing the whole ‘drama’. I think that our Interior Minister and the Prime Minister deserve opprobrium which is quite justified as the whole ‘show’ was organized for nepotism.


Islamabad, September 10.
