Unnecessary holidays

Sir: I cannot understand why the Sindh government has to announce an extra holiday before each gazetted holiday (as they have done for Eid-e-Milad). It is very difficult to explain to employees that a holiday announced by the Sindh government is purely meant for its employees to go to their villages and increase the country’s population. Everyone knows that most of the time this government does not function at all. In fact, it would be
better for it to announce at the beginning of every year the dates on which its employees should report to duty.
