Having served the Ministry of Economic Affairs, GOP, Islamabad as a ‘Naib Qasid’ for over 25 years I retired on July 10, 2012 on medical grounds with A-Category, permanent disability, as confirmed by the competent medical board then constituted by the Health Ministry. The prevailing government policy notified by the Establishment Division permits that one of my children can be employed by Economic Affairs Division subject to dispensing with the condition of open advertisement by the Prime Minister of Pakistan. It was in this context that the Economic Affairs Division had moved a summary for Prime Minister as far back as on August 22, 2013 seeking the needed approval of the Prime Minister for employment of my son Hafiz Muhammad Usman as Naib Qasid and routed it through the Establishment Division. The Establishment Division had also supported the EAD’s proposal and forwarded the summary to Prime Minister’s Office on September 04, 2013. Since then the case is lying in limbo.

Due to my complete disability, due to paralysis and the resultant growing weakness, which has made me totally cripple and having no other source of livelihood my family is in dire need of employment of my son to become the potential bread-earner as already proposed by the Economic Affairs Ministry. May I therefore, humbly request the worthy Prime Minister to kindly approve the above-referred Summary of Economic Affairs Division to enable my son to get employment as early as possible.

MIR AFSAR,

Islamabad, March 21.
