Job quotas revised for MQM and PML-Q

An update to a previous post where I mentioned employment formula for different political parties in Sindh.
This Quota has been changed and a new quota has settled down which was a result of a meeting between CM Abab Rahim and the governor, Dr.Ishrat ul Ibad. According to the new system 80% of government jobs will be given to MQM and the rest 20% will go to PML-Q and other parties. For the rest of Sindh 80% jobs will go for PML-Q and 20% for MQM.
For jobs in education or police departments the candidate must pass an interview test. The appointments in the administrative section of education between grades 5 and 15 will be made directly. In other departments, interview and selection committees will be formed for the selection of candidates.

    is it just me, or does anyone else find this division of jobs based on political association extremely off putting.

    @UNAIZA – May I know about your sources? And what your motivations are in bringing up this sensational breaking news?
    Even the percentages don’t add up. On one hand you are implying that 80% of Sindh govt jobs will go to MQM and then on the same line according to you 80% of the Sindh jobs will go to PML Q. I don’t know how to make sense of these figures.

    My request, Please don’t make this blog a cheap evening daily.

    This quota system oer last 40 years has already destroyed organziations like PIA, WAPDA, and Pak Railways.
    Quota System should be abolished, not promoted. IF there is a good engineer in Lahore, we should all want him to be able to apply for job in Karachi and move to Karachi. It is good for everyone.

    On the other hand, all the faqeers and uneducated types hould be shipped out of Karachi. And, jobs in Karachi and rest of the Sind should be given to people who have skills. This agreement between MQM and PML (some alphabet) may be a political reality, but it is a very bad thing.

    You guys are missing the point privatization and reducing the size of government makes any quota arrangement irrelevant. Any bright young fellow wouldnt even think of a low paid govt job when he has better options in the private sector and thats what is happenning now.

  8. Balma (unregistered) on August 27th, 2007 @ 9:40 pm

    Well, PIA, Pakistan Railways, WAPDA, Pakistan’s civil service, judges and other govt jobs, police, IG, DSPs, army, navy etc have not been privatized yet. And some of them will probably never be privatized such as: army, civil service, foreign service, city public services etc.
    therefore, it is important that best applicants get jobs. Quota system should be abolished all over Pakistan.

    Of course, with privatization and prive enterprise on the rise in Pakistan, lot of good candidates will never apply for govt jobs. Already, only duffers apply for the army: e.g. our brilliant generals!

    yawn ……. zzzzz ,,,,

    This is OLD NEWS, was in the newspapers quite a few days ago.
    Uniza, why r u bringing up old stuff for conversation?

  10. NED (unregistered) on August 27th, 2007 @ 11:15 pm

    Unaiza believes that she could be a journalist by copying and pasting stories from other news media into this blog.
    I have never seen anything original from her…she just simply doesn’t have the talent to come up something of her own.
    Being Jamati and Punjabi, she also like to put MQM down as much as she can. She should be happy that real people of Karachi will now get these Govt jobs instead of people from Punjab who don’t give a shit about this city.
    I wish she could be a fair person/human/Muslim so that she could be saved from burning in hell.

  11. Reality_Check (unregistered) on August 27th, 2007 @ 11:25 pm

    @BALMA PIA, Pakistan Railways, WAPDA are in such a bad shape they are looking at inventive ways of loosing people, they are in no position to hire.

    As for Army and other millitary services there is I believe ISSB and quota system does not apply, in the recent past quite a lot of Sindh kids have joined those institutions, but it is still not preferred by our folks and rightly so. City public services are now under the realm of city government. I agree for the rest of govt sector quota still applies but doesnt makes that much of a difference.

  12. Balma (unregistered) on August 27th, 2007 @ 11:27 pm

    It is not a matter of being a Panjabi or Muslim or Jew. There should be no quota system in Pakistan, sind, and Karachi. Panjab’s 60 % quota in federal jobs (civil service, police, foregin service, WAPDA, railways, PIA etc) should be abolished. Rural / urban quota in Sind should be abolished. Quota system has destoryed PIA and Pakistan’s civil service. Karachi should get the best govt employees, whether from Chicha Vatnee or Defence (a Karachi slum). It shouldn’t matter if a person is Panjabi or Jew (not many left in PK though).

  13. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on August 27th, 2007 @ 11:34 pm

    @NED: so your theory of stupidity states that anyone who condemns MQM is either Punjabi or Jamati.

    I am neither Punjabi nor Jamati and I often criticized both communities on this forum but on the other hand I also reject the militant Qaumi Movement(MQM). Come out of your closet , it’s not a dark night anymore.

  14. Reality_Check (unregistered) on August 27th, 2007 @ 11:43 pm

    @NED you are being too harsh on Unaiza. We all carry our prejuidices, which are formed over a period of time by our experiences and the way we see the world. If you feel that Unaiza is projecting a certain point of view, then you are free to present yours. Name calling and branding is offensive and always weakens your argument, I can only ask you to avoid it in the future.

    As for your statement about Punjabi’s. I ask you what about the Karachiites with Punjabi origins borned and raised here. They are Karachites too, they have contributed towards this city, dont leave them in a state of limbo, we have learned this the hard way, there is no point in repeating the mistakes of the past.

    80 % to ghundas ?
    Wow this city is doomed.

  16. Dubai key Bhai Log (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 1:42 am

    NED, i love you bro, peace.

    Though i agree with your views about the yellow journalism we see on this forum, i dont necessarily share the Jamaat/Punjabi etc view as you have described.

  17. bluemax (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 1:50 am

    80% govt employees are involved in GHUNDA GARDI, now the new ones will be from MQM so whats the big difference?

  18. Straight Talker (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 1:57 am

    I totally disagree with the job quotas and the debate as to who gets what. To avoid all controversies, “Produce Quality Graduates ONLY” as they won’t rely on your quota system to get a job.

  19. NED (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 2:05 am

    Adnan and others,
    You guys are too naive to understand Unaiza’s hidden agenda on this blog. She is being paid to post anti MQM news.
    If you guys talk about eliminating Quota system, lets start at Federal level, lets first eliminate Punjabi Quota being forced on us for last 60 years. Just because MQM and real people of karachi could benefit a little, you all are burning like hell.
    I will never take logical/rational approach when dealing with Unaiza because she is doing it on purpose and this is the only way she might stop spreading hate about MQM.
    Even if most people on this blog agree with Unaiza, this doesn’t prove anything. Most of you guys live around Clifton/Defense area and have never experience REAL life of Karachi people.
    Remember, change will never come from bottom, it has to start at top……from punjab.

  20. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 2:14 am

    NED, where did I praise Unaiza here? I just made a general statement that if this is your thinking than you are not less pathetic than the author which you despise.

  21. Balma (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 2:52 am

    People of Defence and Clifton have been experiencing real lyari like life for a while now. Floods, mosquitos, swerege mixed in their underground water tanks, stuck in their houses.

    I am personally against the quota system of any kind; not even the quota for person to get his son/daughter appointed in his place.

    For sure the federal government has to adopt a fair and balanced approach when it comes to jobs and allocating budgets. No more Punjab’s supremacy in jobs, wealth, cricket and other sport teams, and other resources of Pakistan.

  23. Ali (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 5:17 am

    If MQM got 80 % Quota means 80% jobs will be given to urdu Speaking people and that is something really great as urdu speaking people suffering from quite a while due to Quota System imposed on Urdu Speaks in Gov Jobs.

    Great work MQM

    Hey Unaiza !!!!
    when you are raising voice against Quota System that deprived Urdu Speaks from Civil and Gov Service ???

    its really good to see that defence is worst then North karachi now a days, MQM Nazim is working quite Hard !!!

  24. Reality_Check (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 6:50 am

    @NED I have also questioned Unaiza’s motivations but here I would second Adnan’s post ( though we are at logger heads with each other). I agree with you that she has posted something unsubstantiated and filmsy but that doesnt mean that we resort to personal attacks.

    Fight unreasonable with reason. When people say something to inflame you, the best retort is not get get burned. Cool down man we are all in this together.

  25. Concerned (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 4:36 pm

    Unaiza is probably a very naive journalist who has never even visited a govt office. I dont think she has any ulterior motive, she just has bad sources and no idea about how this country works.

    the fact of the matter is tht urdu speaking ppl are some of the most educated around in khi and they are never even considered for govt jobs. A small example is polic officers. how many urdu speaking police officers have ppl met????

    The senior govt jobs are always punjabis and lower sindhis. for the first time some body is giving these poor guys (urdu speakers) some jobs.

    Ppl should be happyy abt this.

  26. Ali (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 6:43 pm

    @ Concerned
    why these punjabi pathans would be happy if jobs will be given to Urdu Speaks ??
    instead of finding jobs in their native towns they come to karachi to snatch the due and right share of Urdu Speaking People of Karachi.
    SO how they can be happy about this ???

  27. Concerned (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 8:06 pm

    An average Pakistani, who likes to see justice would be happy.

    It is about time there were quotas tht helped out the ppl of khi, ie if this news is true.

  28. Balma (unregistered) on August 28th, 2007 @ 8:50 pm

    This news if true does not help people of Karachi. People who are the best should be hired to solve traffic, sewerage, water, land management problems of Karachi, even if we have to import them from Lahore or Peshawar. Similarly, quota system should be abolished all over Pakistan for all jobs. Or get ready for PIA and WAPDA style disasters!

    PS: I am OK with leaving some positions reserved for untouchables, and handicaps etc.
