Quetta: Saeed Ahmed,28, was one of the toppers among National Testing Candidate’s for teaching posts in Union Council Chatkan of Panjgur district, in 2015. Allegedly he was refused to be posted as a teacher, due to the non-availability of vacant post at his UC. This did not happen only in district Panjgur, however, almost in all districts of Balochistan various toppers in UCs were refused to be given their rights to be appointed as a teacher. The denial to almost 332 candidates resulted in peaceful protests in all districts of Balochistan.
