Karachi: Sindh High Court (SHC) gave last chance to chairman and managing director Sindh Technical Education & Vocational Training Authority (STEVTA) to furnish their respective replies on a petition of lecturers against irregularities in appointments in STEVTA.
The petitioners Iftekhar Jawed Mughal, Muhammad Amjad Khan and 20 others approached the court against STEVTA administration, submitting that they were appointed as lecturers in different faculties in STEVTA on contract basis.
They told two-judge bench that they applied for different posts, including shop instructor and lab assistant announced by managing director STEVTA on 01 January 2011, and they were declared successful in written test and interviews but were not given appointment letters.
The petitioners alleged that later MD STEVTA appointed blue-eyed persons on political basis, who had never taken written test nor appeared in interviews. They said that STEVTA also ended their contract and expelled them from jobs without any plausible reason.
They pleaded the court to direct STEVTA administration to place on record the appointments since 2011 and issue them appointment letters.
