Ahmed claimed that a large number of retired armed forces personnel had been employed in NADRA despite a rise in unemployment and a shortage of jobs for fresh graduates.

The senator added that giving these jobs with great perks to personnel who are of retirement age was a great injustice with the youth of the country. Ahmed reiterated his question that he be informed regarding the number of retired armed personnel working in NADRA and their positions.
