Harazas from Maidan Wardak say denied govt jobs

Harazas from Maidan Wardak say denied govt jobs

Jan 18, 2020 - 17:51

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Some civil societyinfo-icon activists from central Maidan Wardak province allege ethnic balance has not been considered in appointments to government posts in the province.

Addressing reporters here, around 20 civil society activists from Hazara ethnic group said different ethnic groups lived in Maidan Wardak province but balance was never maintained in government appointments among the ethnicities.

Sharif Watandosest, a civil society activist, said in 42 provincial government departments only one Hazara and one Qazal Bash worked on a higher post and the remaining all key positions were occupied by Pashtuns.

He said on 32 government posts in the Police Headquarters, nine Tajik, one Bayat, one Sadaat and 21 Pashtons served.

“We the people of Hazara pay taxes but in government organizations our people are not hired. We ask the president and the Chief Executive Officer to pay head to this problem in Maidan Wardak.”

They also issued a resolution, demanding resignation of MaidanWardak governor and appointment of qualified people from Behsud district to key posts.

They accused the governor of fueling ethnic and sectarian differences among people and warned of widespread protests if their demands were not met.

But Governor’s Spokesperson Mohaibullah Sharifzai said appointments on government posts from second to fifth scale were made through open competition and the governor or his deputy had no rule in the matter.
