June 12, 2015

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Thursday directed the top level civil servants to increase efficiency in their departments and make a good team of talented officers who can take Pakistan towards development and prosperity.
While talking to the officers recently promoted to BS-22 at the PM House, the prime minister congratulated the newly promoted officers and said this was their time to pay back to the nation based on their average three decades of experience.
He said that their promotions were done purely on merit in line with government’s policy of transparency and good governance.He said that a government officer should work in the best interest of the country and nation, without any political bias and his personal feelings should not be reflected in his working.
“Senior officers should present themselves as role models of integrity and efficiency to their subordinates,” he added.The prime minister said that for the first time in country’s history smaller occupational groups have also been given representation at the top level of civil bureaucracy to improve their service prospects and raise their morale.
He sought suggestions from the officers regarding civil service reforms which he said are aimed at providing best possible service to the people, giving rewards to better performing officers and punish those who indulge in corruption, malpractices or slackness.
He said that the government did not believe in political victimisation of any kind, and there was not a single instance during last two years in which any officer had been transferred on this basis.
The officers also shared their views on civil service reforms. Secretary to PM, Javed Aslam and Secretary Establishment Nadeem Hassan Asif also attended the meeting.Later, Governor Gilgit-Baltistan and Minister for Kashmir Affairs and GB, Chaudhry Birjees Tahir also called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at the PM House.
The PM congratulated him on the peaceful

holding of Legislative Assembly elections in a transparent and independent manner. He said international observers have also appreciated transparent holding of elections, for which credit goes to governor GB, local administration, Pakistan Army and judiciary as well as the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.
