CM’s Secretariat workers complain of ‘unfair’ Eidi distribution

Private employees at Raiwind and Nawaz Sharif’s staff also get Rs2,000 each.

LAHORE:


The Chief Minister’s Secretariat has distributed Rs11.3 million as Eidi among government employees posted at the secretariat and at various official residences, The Express Tribune has learnt.


However, several officials complained the amount was not distributed equally. Rs5,000 each has been given as Eidi to BS-1 to BS-16 officials and waiters posted at the chief minister’s residences. The officials posted with the principal secretary and staff officers to the chief minister have been given Rs4,000 each. Those posted with additional secretaries, deputy secretaries and section officers have been given Rs2,000 each as Eidi.

Private servants working at the chief minister’s Raiwind residence and Mian Nawaz Sharif’s staff have also been paid Rs2,000 each from the public kitty.

Abdul Qayyum, the additional secretary (administration), said the amount paid as Eidi was related to the nature of responsibilities, the working hours and the work load. Those who work round the clock, said Qayyum, had been given more while those on lighter assignments had paid less.

Asked if private servants had also been paid from public funds, the additional secretary admitted that they had, adding that the chief minister was authorised to pay small amount of money to the poor from public funds at his discretion.
