Over 4,000 KESC employees declared 'non-core personnel were forcibly restored in January when coalition government under political pressure restored them. This has worsened the prevailing dispute between KESC and the Government as KESC was not ready to accept them voluntarily being surplus. It would be better if the government instead of pressurizing KESC management to accept such a large number of surplus employees mostly irregular, rather ensure better deal for outgoing employees. Needless to mention here, PIA had also declared redundant about 7,000 of its employees through various mandatory and golden hand shake schemes during the tenures of Mian Nawaz Sharif and later ex-army dictator General (r) Musharraf in order to make organization viable.
