During the General Elections last year, a lot of Pakistanis decided to give Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) a chance, given Imran Khan’s promise of bringing in a new era of ‘clean and corruption-free politics.’ PM Khan brought in a lot of new faces to Pakistani politics, with Murad Saeed, Zartaj Gul among few others being some of them.

That promise of ‘Say No To Corruption’ appealed to a lot of folks, who now want Imran Khan to demonstrate how serious he was about it. Just this weekend, news went around that the government’s Minister for Climate Change, Zartaj Gul Wazir, used her influence to install her sister as a director in NACTA, the country’s anti-terrorism watchdog body.

Zartaj Gul’s attempt to give her a family member a job has not gone down well with a lot of people, be they PTI supporters or critics. Her blatant attempt at exercising nepotism has led to people talking about the whole fiasco over social media.

What People Are Saying

It is important to mention what Naeem ul Haq, Special Assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan, has to say regarding Zartaj Gul’s nepotism:

Naeem has echoed the view that nepotism is against the ‘ethics of PTI.’ This also happens to be the view of many Pakistanis from all walks of life.

In fact, some other candidates were rejected for the same job despite them passing the required tests and procedures that NACTA had placed an advertisement for in major newspapers.

The Minister’s Response

With the issue turning into a major embarrassment for the sitting government, the State Minister for Climate Change tweeted her response as well:

That ‘explanation’ of hers hasn’t won any fans, as news trickled out that Shabnum Gul may have plagiarized her thesis all the way back in 2007 when she was working as a researcher for Punjab University:

It wasn’t all outrage after outrage though. Some people decided to express the whole situation in a lighter vein:

What are your thoughts regarding Zartaj Gul’s attempt to secure a job for her sister?
