Brave words from a lowly provincial pen pusher.
According to a reader (see his posted comments on my blog: Poor Shazia Khalid vs. A Sleazoid )
Abdus Samad Lasi was inducted into Balochistan’s civil service on the basis of sifarish , bypassing the normal channels of recruitment which require a public advertising of jobs, followed by competitive examinations held by the Balochistan Public Service Commission. Not surprisingly therefore, while most of Lasi’s batch mates in the civil service got promoted to the next grade (BS-18), the duffer failed in his departmental examinations. So, his grade stayed where it was. Today, despite being one of the junior most officers, he has been specially selected to be the District Coordination Officer in Dera Bugti District.

Just in case anyone is wondering why Wasi Zafar chronically gets away with this kind of criminal behaviour, I may have the answer. According to a reliable source I have been informed that this ill-mannered thug happens to be a brother of a Corps Commander.
A visiting contact of mine was recently honoured by Musharraf who hosted him to a private dinner at his residence. When asked about Balochistan the General reassured his guest that he would lift Balochistan out of Stone Age and develop it to everyone’s benefit.
The question remains: To whose actual benefit, General sahib?

I wonder who is right- the general or these young men?
