Pub­lic an­noyed over Tehsil of­fi­cer’s re­post­ing

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - BASHIR AH­MAD REHMANI

HAFIZABAD—Lo­cal po­lit­i­cal and so­cial work­ers as well as traders have protested against the re­post­ing of Ikram Ul­lah Sandhu Tehsil Of­fi­cer in the TMA Hafizabad and have called upon the Chief Min­is­ter of the Pun­jab to trans­fer him im­me­di­ately.

The ser­vices of the “pow­er­ful of­fi­cer” who re­mained posted in the TMA for more than six years, had been placed at the dis­posal of Sec­re­tary Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Pun­jab by the DCO on the charges of al­leged cor­rup­tion, mis­use of of­fi­cial pow­ers and com­mit­ting var­i­ous ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties about a month ago.

On com­plaints of cit­i­zens, the DCO Muham­mad Ah­mad Ra­jwana had put his ser­vices at the dis­posal of the Pun­jab Gov­ern­ment but due to sheer sur­prise of cit­i­zens and the district ad­min­is­tra­tion, Mr Sandhu has suc­ceeded in get­ting his lu­cra­tive post again.

The DCO then as­sured the del­e­ga­tions that Sandhu would not re­turn here but it has been proved that Mr. Sandhu is more “pow­er­ful” than the DCO, al­though DCO is also not “pow­er­less” be­cause he is nephew of Gover­nor of the Pun­jab.
