NA body recommends removal of MD PSO

A parliamentary panel on Thursday recommended removal of Pakistan State Oil (PSO) Management Director (MD) Naeem Yahya Mir for his dual nationality and ineligibility for the post. Convener Jamshed Dasti said expressed concern over PSO MD holding dual nationality and running the business of the largest oil agency in the country. The committee demanded removal of Mir for he may take any decision against the national interests of the country and later flee abroad. Dasti asked additional secretary Abid Saeed to remove Mir from his position otherwise he would go to the Supreme Court to raise the issue. The committee was expressed annoyance at the news of oil theft of over Rs 320 million from the system of OGDCL. In this regard, OGDCL MD Masood Siddiqui informed the parliamentary panel that two officials were involved in the act and those officers had been suspended while a reference had been sent to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against them. OGDCL MD was directed to give complete report in this regard and to remove ghost officials from the organisation and avoid all kinds of political pressure from any side.
