Chief Minister, Sindh,
Provincial Ombudsman Sindh.
“We are here to provide Administrative Justice”
This refers to your quarter page ad, placed in all national newspapers on March 20, 2015, claiming, “We are here for your help… to provide Administrative Justice”.
Here is a citizen’s complaint, a test case, to determine if you would actually provide the promised ‘administrative justice ‘ or are simply misusing government funds.
Three government officials, i.e. Governor Sindh, Chief Minister Sindh and Provincial Ombudsman Sindh jointly colluded to place a newspaper ad (attached), ostensibly to convey a public interest message. They however also inserted their own coloured photographs in the ad, solely for the purpose of personal publicity and self-projection.
It is a fact that the ad was paid entirely from the tax payers’ money and the three gentlemen did not contribute a single penny towards this self-aggrandizing ad. This makes it a blatant case of ‘gross administrative malpractice’ and ‘misappropriation of tax payers’ money.’
You are requested to investigate this serious misuse of state resources for petty personal publicity and take the following actions:
This letter is also being sent to all newspapers who compromised their ethics for purely commercial reasons in carrying the ad – essentially an exercise in narcissism at state expense. A copy is also being sent to the Ministry of Planning, Development and Reform for inclusion of these suggestions in the proposed ‘URAAN” project.
CC: Chief Secretary: To please instruct all ministries to stop personal photographs in official ads.
