Islamabad (Friday, July 15, 2011) – Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi, said on Thursday that provincial governments should accommodate 16,000 employees of National Commission for Human Development (NCHD).
This he said during a meeting with a delegation of NCHD employees who are staging a sit-in and hunger strike in front of Parliament House for the past 24 days.
Hyderi said the provincial governments should regularise the employees of NCHD as most of them have been working with NCHD for the past ten years and become overage for seeking any permanent job in some other government department. He said that he will personally meet the chairman Implementation Commission to sort out the issue. He said that his party had highlighted the issues arising out of devolution of various ministries much earlier.
He asked the provincial governments to allocate funds for the devolved ministries or the federal government should assist them till they are able to manage these ministries on their own. He was informed that Balochistan and Sindh governments have indicated to accommodate 2,260 and 2,740 employees respectively, however Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhaw are unwilling to accommodate 6,000 and 5,000 employees respectively.
They also told that if 16,000 NCHD employees are not accommodated, not only their families will face financial crisis but also education of over 500,000 children would be affected.
