Through this petition the petitioner has prayed for the following relief:-
(a) Direct the respondent No.1 to appoint the petitioner as Pesh Imam on deceased quota as the petitioner is not only qualified but also his father being the Pesh Imam had died during service and so also the petitioner has completed all the formalities of appointment according to law.
(b) To declare that the refusal of respondent No.1 to appoint the petitioner as Pesh Imam on deceased quota and intending to appoint someone else due to political pressure is illegal, malafide, without due course of law and against the notification of the Government.
(c) To restrain the respondent No.1 not to make appointment on the above said post till finalization of this petition.
Succinctly facts as diverted in this petition are that the father of petitioner was working as Pesh Imam Imam and expired in the year 2011 and thereafter the petitioner applied for job but his application is lying unattended.
The respondents No.1 to 4 in their comments submitted that the case of petitioner will be considered for appointment of Pesh Imam on priority basis after verification of his degree. Today Nasir Ahmed Shaikh, Executive Engineer Drainage Division, Shikarpur/ respondent No.1 has also filed statement wherein he has categorically stated that he shall appoint the petitioner as prayed for after completion of necessary coddle formalities soon after the ban is lifted by government of Sindh which has been imposed by Chief Minister Sindh recently.
Learned counsel for the petitioner being satisfied with the statement filed by the respondent No.1 does not want to press the petition any more. Petition is accordingly disposed of in terms of statement filed by respondent No.1. There shall be no order as to cost.
