The Sindh High Court (SHC) has declared the recruitment of 1,302 vaccinators in the year 2019 illegal and ordered authorities to reorganise interviews for the appointments. The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday heard a petition related to the appointment of 1,302 vaccinators in 2019. The petition stated that the advertisement of the recruitments had been released in 2018. Following the advertisement, those obtained 60 or lesser marks in NTS had been appointed on UC-level as vaccinators. Irregularities were made in the recruitment process, it added. The high court declared the recruitments of 1,302 vaccinators in 2019 ‘illegal’. The Sindh government has been directed by SHC to conduct interviews for the positions again. Moreover, the Sindh government has been ordered to establish a training institute for vaccinators. Separately, the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday restrained the civic authorities from razing Sindh Assembly opposition leader Haleem Adil Shaikh’s farmhouses in Karachi’s Malir area. The court issued notices to the chief secretary and other respondents on a petition moved by the PTI leader. After a preliminary hearing, the SHC bench granted a stay order against further demolition of his farmhouses and sought comments from the authorities concerned in this regard. The hearing was adjourned until February 23. Haleem Adil Shaikh’s lawyer contended before the court that his client’s farmhouses are being razed by the provincial government out of vengeance and pleaded that it be restrained from doing so. On Saturday, the administration had launched an anti-encroachment drive on the outskirts of Karachi and pulled down dozens of farmhouses reportedly owned by Haleem Adil Shaikh, who termed the action as a “personal attack” for his “outspoken and fearless” campaign against alleged corruption of the PPP.
