By Irfan Ali
KARACHI: The Sindh government has completed plans to accommodate more than 650 employees of the disbanded Sindh Arid Zone Development Authority (SAZDA) in irrigation, health and education departments.
The provincial government is also considering offering golden handshake to another 600 employees of the wrapped -up Sindh Agriculture Supplies Organisation (SASO), a subsidiary of the agriculture department.
Official sources told Daily Times on Wednesday that the functionaries of SAZDA were being accommodated in district governments’ departments of health and education and notification in this regard was likely to be issued within a fortnight.
Sources in the agriculture department said the provincial minister of agriculture, Arif Mustafa Jatoi, would preside over a meeting on May 3 to outline various aspects of two packages for more than 629 employees of SASO.
According to the policy of the Sindh government, SASO and SAZDA are being disbanded without causing problems to their employees.
