Gilgit-Baltistan: Another Mega Scam in GB?

Posted on

Gilgit (ET): The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has accused the Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) government of awarding a multi-million rupee tender on nepotism.

Addressing reporters outside the Gilgit Press Club on Saturday, PML-N Ghizer President Rana Nasir Hussain alleged that the government has awarded a tender for Rs700 million to blue-eyed officials. He claimed that the tender – which includes construction of buildings, boundary walls and classrooms in different valleys of the region, including Ghizer, Diamer and Skardu – was not advertised in any newspaper.

“We have done our homework and we believe that the education minister, education secretary and a director are among those involved in this mega scam,” Hussain alleged. Furthermore, he said that the project was awarded in the month of May, “which suggests that they intended to withdraw the money before the end of the fiscal year”. The accused officials could not be contacted for comment.
