KARACHI: Amid protests of teachers who are demanding issuance of their salaries, Sindh Minister for Education Jam Mehtab has claimed that around 22000 additional appointments (without seats) were made in the provincial education department during the past tenures.
He said the appointments were made with the connivance of some officials in the Sindh education department, adding that the department does not have seats to appoint such high number of individuals, according to report of Geo News.
“Educators recruited to teach Sindhi and Arabic are themselves unaware of the respective alphabets,” Mehtab lamented, adding that keeping such teachers on their posts is tantamount to “spoiling the system.”
The minister, however, failed to propose a solution to the issue.
On the other hand, protesting teachers, who have passed the National Testing Service (NTS) test, continued their demonstration outside Karachi Press Club for the second consecutive day on Tuesday.
The educators, including the ones appointed in past tenures, have been protesting against non-issuance of salaries and for not being appointed permanently.
