A leading politician has deployed 17 additional secretaries for his official duties while his successors have had services of only 5 or six additional secretaries, as revealed.
These additional secretaries have been assigned to perform duties of supervision of several ministries and these officials are paid salaries, allowances and also provided with a staff, fuel, communication and computer facilities and annual expenses of these offices are estimated at Rs. 50 million.
These excessive designations are only a waste of peoples’ money as any special duties are not performed by the extra staff as revealed at a discussion of several prominent politicians.
