ISLAMABAD: Employment criterion of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has raised grave concern for citizens as it was giving undue favour to a specific region, an official said on Tuesday.

An official on request of anonymity disclosed that the board’s anomaly has been discussed and question was raised among members for giving extra favour to Punjab province.

He said the majority of contractual employees hired belong to Punjab while other provinces were denied right to job on merit.

“The major chunk was offered to Punjab i.e.142 out of 190 recruited employees,” he said. While from Sindh (21), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (11), Balochistan (8), AJK (6) and one each from Fata and Gilgit-Baltistan were offered appointment, he added.

The official said this appointment criterion would promote nepotism and the performance of the institution would badly be affected.

“There are currently 866 total employees working in PCB,” he said. – APP
