Rulers’ con­tempt for youth

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

HASHIM ABRO Re­peat­edly the prover­bial dead­woods are reem­ployed on con­trac­tual job with en­vi­able pay pack­age and other perks and priv­i­leges af­ter their for­mal re­tire­ment from the ser­vice. This at­ti­tude es­tab­lishes the fact that our rulers hold our youth tal­ent in con­tempt.

Highly qual­i­fied and gifted young seg­ment of the so­ci­ety is wan­der­ing from pil­lar to post in search of suit­able job but well-con­nected, many of them fit to be termed as a square peg into a round hole, get re­peated ex­ten­sions in their reem­ploy­ment to fur­ther par­a­lyze the or­ga­ni­za­tions. Is this jus­tice, re­spect for the merit and the rule of law in this coun­try? —Is­lam­abad
