They said that DEO himself had posted so many teachers at those schools which were closed. They alleged that eight to 10 teachers had already retired from government service approximately two years ago or had died but they had also been issued show-cause notices which prove that most incompetent person had been posted since long as DEO Primary in Larkana without knowing his expertise who cannot run schools on scientific lines and improve fundamental education system.
These teachers include PSTs Muhammad Mithal, Zamir Hussain Shah and Sabir Hussain son of Rahib Sangi of Government Primary School, Hazoori Sangi, who too has retired from government service a year ago but even then he has not been spared. They said it clearly indicated that notorious biometric teams have miserably failed and are also involved in massive corruption which should be eliminated now.
