Letter to Editor From Sukkur
I am surprised no anchor person or any media person has yet interviewed or focused over the present secretary irrigation, Sindh, who is posted as secretary since last eight years despite his retirement continued to remain on the post for three consecutive contracts.
Obviously on the basis of being a good pay master to higher authorities. He may be asked as how much funds he has so far utilized for so called maintenance of the river banks of sindh.
Actually it is the non maintenance (maintenance on papers only for utilization of funds worth millions per year) which is basic and root cause of such huge scale devastation e.g. breakage/ leakage of river banks on various places. It is strange that the government has so far taken no action against him, obviously for his capacity to bribe the higher authorities from the share of billions of rupees of funds which he has earned in his tenure of about 40 yrs in irrigation department being an engineer/technical person with extra ordinary maneuvering qualities. It is suggested that he be brought on media and questioned about utilization of funds for maintenance of river banks. And his efficiency to remain on the job continuously for 3 contracts.
I wonder why every anchor person calls the retired secretary and other retired engineers and has so far ignored the present secretary. The Irrigation Secretary Sindh has been serving/plundering this department since last 40 years. Ministers and governments change but he remains on the seat continuously. Even PPP, MNA complained about his corruption on the floor of national assembly but failed to arise any action against the blue eyed boy.
