The previous government of PPPP, on the recommendations of the departments concerned, regularised the contractual employees working efficiently for more than one years under a uniform policy without taking into consideration their political affiliation. It has been learnt, the government is considering termination of services of such employees working for the last many years as well as those regularised in the previous regime, the letter added. Termination of services of the employees will deprive thousands of families from making both ends meet.
A large number of educated youngsters are jobless, facing problems and the act of termination of services will not be appreciated by the public. Government instead of terminating the services of contractual employees may consider continuation of their services, the letter further revealed. The Leader of Opposition proposed that this may be considered purely on humanitarian grounds.
