CSS exam may be postponed by a month Federal Public Service Commission  of Lahore

LAHORE: The Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) is likely to postpone the Central Superior Service (CSS) examination of 2009 for one month and delay the announcement of final allocations for the CSS exams of 2008 because its employees are on strike, FPSC officials told Daily Times on Sunday.

Around 9,000 candidates have applied for the 2009 CSS exam, which is currently scheduled for March 14, of which 5,000 are yet to receive their roll number slips.

Almost 500 FPSC staff are on a hunger strike for the last 11 days, protesting against the alleged corruption of the secretary and two director generals. The FPSC chairman suspended 10 of the protesting employees on March 5 following a deadlock in talks between the employees and the chairman. The FPSC chairman will make a decision on the postponement of the exam on Monday (today), and sources familiar with the developments said it would likely be delayed by a month.

FPSC’s sacked director recruitment Mushtaq Ahmad Awan – who is leading the protest campaign – said the staff wanted FPSC Secretary Bashir Ahmad Chohan and two director generals sacked, because the “troika of corruption” has ruined the commission’s repute of transparency. Awan said the secretary had asked police to arrest all protesters on Monday. Chohan said however that he was being targeted because he had eliminated a ‘mafia’ of corruption from the commission. The former FPSC director general had recruited dozens of relatives and close friends in the commission, he alleged, including Awan – who Chohan claimed was only a matriculate.

Bashir Chohan claimed it was the aides of the former DG who were on strike because the FPSC had declined to reappoint him after his retirement. He told Daily Times the commission would review the schedule of the CSS exam because of the long march and sit-in planned by lawyers and opposition political parties. A final decision would be made after consultation with all provincial governments, he said.
