Politicisation of Civil Bureaucracy

Bookmark and Share

Political governments come and go. The government officials whose hierarchy is known as bureaucrats stay on. The postings, transfers and placement of bureaucrats are done according to well laid out rules and regulations. These appointments are supposed to be apolitical. However, now,that is not the case. The worthy Prime Minister who was earlier charged for unfairly employing people, when he was Speaker National Assembly, continues to do so, rather more blodly, as this times he is occupying a higher pedestal. The News International writes,

The bureaucracy is faced with such a sorry state of affairs that the MPs and politicians are openly recommending the postings and transfers of their favourites. The dilemma is that the Prime Minister’s Secretariat is found generous in forwarding such recommendations, which are illegal under the rules, to the Establishment Division and other concerned agencies for implementation. It is the consequence of such whimsical appointments that the Foreign Service of Pakistan has simply gone mad over the appointment of a grade-20 DMG officer as ambassador to Paris. In their petition, they said that the appointment of Mohammad Jehanzeb Khan, DMG Officer of 1987 batch, as ambassador of Pakistan to France, is unprecedented, demoralising and most importantly a violation of the rights of the FSP officers.

His appointment is extraordinary for the reason that Imam has been made inspector general of Islamabad though he has not served as deputy inspector general (DIG) or regional police officer (RPO) even for a single day. After being transferred to his present position, he has become the youngest ever IG Police in the history of Pakistan.

The politicisation of the bureaucracy is distorting the very structure of this institution. It will be incorrect to say that our 'innocent' rulers are ignorant about the rules and regulations. It's all sheer misuse of one's authority and nepotism about which we hear long lectures and sermons but no deeds, rather what we see are the misdeeds.

POLITICISATION OF NOT ONLY BUREAUCRACY BUT IN EVERY FIELD AND DEPARTMENT IS DEADLY WEAPON WHICH NOT ONLY DESTROY SUCH INSTITUTIONS BUT TO DESTROY THE COUNTRY.

FOR GOD SAKE WAKE UP IF YOU FEEL YOU ARE A MUSLIM AND A PAKISTANI OTHERWISE IT WILL BE TOO LATE. YOU HAVE TO REPLY TO GOD AS THE RULERS HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF NATION NOT TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.

Do these people really believe in God? By words, yes, by deeds, no.
