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.
There is a big list of such departments lacking provincial representation which is not considered necessary to mention there of but it should be duty of the concerned ministries to look into this very national problem and remove any imbalance in the interest of the country.
