One major reason why Karachi's electrics don't work!

One major reason why Karachi's electrics don't work!


 In January this year, more than 4,000 employees declared ‘non-core personnel’ were restored by the coalition government but KESC management refused to accept the surplus personnel voluntarily. Now the solution is announcement of golden handshake packages and peaceful, dialogue and negotiation with the labour. Government should kick out the ‘appointees of political elites, who were bribed for their political pressure.
  On one hand KESC management is calling these 400 people as burden and on the other hand same management has appointed 650 people at packages ranging from Rs 150,000 to Rs500, 000.
  Here is the list of some (there is a long list of these kind of people)
  · Shahbaz Beg son of MQM-MNA Khushbakht Shujat- package Rs 500,000.
  · Pir Danish, son of PPP minister Pir Mazharul Haq- Rs 500,000- designation Government Affairs Director.
  · Nayyat Hussain, a relative of PPP MNA Sherry Rehman-Technical Group Head-package 2.5 million per month.
  · Asif Hussain- brother of MQM provincial minister Aadil Siddiqi- KESC Production Department’s revenue director- package is 700,000 per month
  · Abid Hussain, brother of MQM's parliamentary leader in the Sindh Assembly, Syed Sardar Ahmed- project director- package Rs 500,000 per month
  · MQM diehard activist Abrar Hussain- Project-2 Director- package Rs 500,000.
  · Naveed Hussain- close relative of PML-Q’s MNA Humayun Akhtar- Group Head of Recovery-package is Rs 29 lakh per month.
  · Tayyab Tareen from Multan- Finance Group Head- sent by the Prime Minister’s House.
  · Former heads of Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) Karachi and Islamabad, Brig. (retd) Mazhar Ahmed and Brig. (retd) Masood Ahmed- security chiefs. Package Rs 1.5 million each per month. Diretly appointed by President’s House.
  · About 18 retired colonels are working for the company, sources said. “Col (retd) Wahid Asghar, Col (retd) Imran Nadeem Khuwaja, Col (retd) Saqi, Col(retd) Aamir are among the former military men hired in the company. They all are pocketing Rs 500,000 every month
  · Asir Manzoor- group head of Human Resources- package Rs 2 million. He worked in Ittefaq Foundry owned by leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
  · Zarar Nasir Khan- general manger- package is Rs 500,000 ( he is brother-in-law of Asir and within 18 months, Manzoor promoted Khan twice – first as deputy general manager and then as general manager. His appointment is illegal. He is an intermediate only.

  Now you please think and decide that are the demands workers, who earn between Rs 10,000 and Rs 30,000 for their livelihood and to feed their families, unjustified.
  Instead of resolving the issue and listen to the workers demands, the KESC management is releasing millions of rupees advertisements to print and electric channels against the workers. So-called PAID MOULVIS like Mufti Naeem are talking poison against the workers and calling the strike ‘un-Islamic’.
