Mardan   -   The office-bearers of various government employees’ organisations have demanded of the government to immediately stop the political interference in the government departments and stop posting and transfer of employees in the district on political bases, a press statement said.

They argued that employees have played a key role in bringing the PTI government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa three times. They added that PTI chairman Imran Khan took the vote on the slogan of merit, rule of law, ending political interference from institutions in the country but the PTI lawmakers are using political influence in postings and transfers in the departments of Mardan district which is intolerable.

They added that due to political interference in the government institutions in Mardan district great anxiety is created among government employees. They accused that the transfers and postings in different government institutions in Mardan district have taken place on political grounds.
