Vacant positions leave gaping hole in Rawalpindi Education performance

RAWALPINDI – Portraying a major lapse, the Education Department of Rawalpindi is short of 125 staff positions, including officers and other staff members, which in turn affects routine affairs of the department’s offices and schools. On the other hand, a tug of war had started between clerks and a district education officer, over taking action against the clerical staff, on the pretext of inspection. APCA office bearers have decided to launch a protest movement in this regard.
The posts of assistant director, registrar (exams), students’ welfare officers and 105 posts of LDC, 10 posts of UDC and seven posts of assistants have been lying vacant for years.

APCA Education Department President Chaudhry Mubashir Ahmad deplored the actions of EDO (secondary) Naseer Kiani, saying that the clerical staff was marked absent if they ever left office to pay their electricity bills or on official work.
He threatened to lay siege to the district education department office and launch a protest movement if the EDO’s revengeful attitude, against the clerical staff and teachers, did not change.
