WRIT PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 199 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN
1. That the petitioners are government servants and are serving in Education department Rawalpindi. That the respondent No. 1 with the collision of respondent No. 3 issued illegal and irregular transfer orders No. 5784/A-II dated 25.08.2012 and No. 5790/A-II dated 26.08.2012 and transferred the petitioners to various school running under the supervision and partial arrangements of respondent No. 3 in Union Council Thathi (تھاتھی), Tehsil Gujar Khan, District Rawalpindi. The petitioners became aggrieved of the orders and preferred to file this very Writ Petition to invoke the constitutional jurisdiction of this Honorbale Court finding no other efficacious remedy.

These orders have been issued solely upon political basis to reward a specific area of Punjab. The impugned orders are good example of pre-pole rigging by the respondent No. 1 for the political gain of the Chief Minister Punjab.
5. That the impugned orders are issued without any prior announcement of any transfer policy etc. in a very hasty manner.
