Islamabad: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa Thursday remarked during the hearing of the case in the Supreme Court Karachi Registry that the government institutions are feeding the employees and paying them for doing no work.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa comprising Justice Jamal Khan Mandukhel and Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan heard the petition against the dismissal of contract employees of Hyderabad Development Authority at the Supreme Court Karachi Registry.

The Supreme Court expressed its displeasure over not getting a satisfactory response from the counsel for the petitioners.

Qazi Faez Isa said: “We will see what the government departments are doing, what the government institutions are doing? Only the employees are being fed, only people are being hired in government jobs, employees are being given salaries, the government has no resources to do anything”.

He stated that they are only said to be serving, they are recruiting three times as many employees for each post. Those are posted on government jobs who are not qualified. The burden of illegal recruitment is on the public of Sindh.

Petitioner Advocate Malik Naeem stated that the recruitments were done under the package of the President and the Governor, the government itself started the project and later sent back the employees.

On this, Justice Qazi said that we should not run the government, they should run the government themselves. They have flouted the law in the name of authority, what authority do the president and the governor have? Did they have their own money? We will not allow the Constitution to be flouted. How did the president get the power to distribute money to whoever he wants?

The Chief Justice inquired when it happened and who did it? On which the petitioner's lawyer said that the recruitment package was received during the tenure of General Musharraf.

Qazi Faez Isa said that if the foundation of something is wrong then this is what happens. What the people of province are getting? Roads, water, electricity or what? Will ytheyou continue to pay all the money in salaries?
