Service structure, rights for prosecution employees sought

PESHAWAR: The office-bearers of the All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter, on Tuesday urged the provincial government to give equal rights to the employees of the Prosecution Department as given to their counterparts in the department working in courts and secretariat.
The demand was made by the provincial president of the APCA Mian Ishaq Ahmad during a meeting with the Director General Prosecution Adil Saddique held here. Other office-bearers of the association were also present.
Mian Ishaq Ahmad apprised the Director General Prosecution Adil Saddique about the hardships being faced by the employees of the Prosecution Department.
He said the positions of superintendents in the department had been lying vacant since 2008, and promotion of the employees on the basis of seniority was being hampered.
Expressing reservations over the proposed amendment to the Services Rules, Ishaq Ahmad said if approved it would deprive the employees of promotion, which he said, was against the General Services Rules.
He said there was no service structure for the employees of the department, adding the employees get retire in the same scale they are appointed. Apart from this, he believed, the department was giving the prosecution allowance on personal likes and dislikes. He said 250 employees of the department across the province had not been given their allowance since long.
The office-bearer said the Prosecution Department employees appointed in courts and secretariat were given judiciary and secretariat allowances which pointed the discrimination among the employees of the same department and caused concern among the employees.
He pleaded that all the employees should be treated equally.
