    All out effort should be put in to make these recruitment on merit. Merit and justice are the two important pillars of strength of any civilized society. I wish the deserving candidates get their rights of selection. Political appointees be avoided sending a message to everybody that merit, only the merit would prevail.

    The large no of Recrutment in Eduation Department is a very good step. But The Government ignored the District Jhang. Only 247 vacancies alloted to the District Jhang. But Other District have been sactioned nearabout 1500 each District I humbly request to the Mian Shahbaz Sharif to sanction 1000 vacancies.
