With reference to a news item appeared in some local news paper regarding 13 ministries are working without Secretaries.In this regard it is added that during the Marshall Law rule of the Government of Pakistan, nothing constitutionally is observed in the field of recrimtments, promotions postings and placements in all the ministries, divisions and departments of the Faderal Government for the people of smaller provinces.In order to remove sense of deprivation and heart burnings from the minds of people of Pakistan, in all the ministries and departments working under the Federal Governmnet of Pakistan, ratio of Provincial Constitutional quota may be observed in recruitments, people from smaller provinces may preferably be selected as it has sorrowfully been observed that no provincial quota has been maintained in the past years and therefore no provincial representation is available in many departments, sections and offices of various ministries and divisions of federal Government.

Wichaar is facing a serious problem in Pakistan. It is randomly blocked and then unblocked. We have not yet determined if the authorities are giving us warning signals or it is a technical problem.
When Wichaar gets blocked in Pakistan it is fine everywhere else. We have checked with the service provider in the US and they say it is not related to them. We have tried to check in Pakistan service providers and they have no clues. So, we yet don’t know if the authorities are playing games with us or something else. We will keep you posted. If you know anything about it please inform/advise us at
