On Thursday, while hearing the case on promotions of the Pakistan Steel Mill (PSM) employees, the Supreme Court of Pakistan has summoned Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar, Privatisation Minister Muhammad Mian Soomro, Industry and Production Minister Muhammad Hammad Azhar and the secretaries of the respective ministries.
The Chief Justice of Pakistan, Gulzar Ahmed said that since PSM is closed it doesn’t need a CEO or managing director. He further said that these institutions are nothing but a burden.
“Has the government launched any investigation against the management?”, CJ Gulzar said. The management is primarily responsible for its downfall as they made the wrong decisions.
Furthermore, CJ Gulzar hinted that if the management doesn’t improve its performance then the court will close the mills.
