Why we need Meritocracy -letter

aka 'The revenge of Democracy'

The province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is ruled by democratically elected Charsadda oriented politicians. Charsadda is famous for sugar cane and there is a proverb that the more you pour in sugar the more sweet it will get  This is why Public Service Commission is not working since April 2008.  8000 Adhoc people have been regularized and cases of 2000 more are in the process.


In Nov 2010, Higher Education Department  Khyber Pakhtunkhwa appointed 800 Adhoc lecturers on the basis of nepotism and corruption. Among 150 first Divisioners from Chitral, district, nobody was appointed because no one could deposit six months salary in the accounts of the concerned quarters. The demand was genuine; we give you one year contract on fifty-fifty basis. This is exactly what is called “the murder of meritocracy” or "the revenge of democracy" in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. --Bashir Hussain Azad, Chitral. . --Bashir Hussain Azad, Chitral. 27 Nov 2010.
