Another meeting of the sub committee is being convened shortly while ensuring the availability of all the respective members to amicably settle PTCL land issue and to get the stalled instalments of the remaining proceeds on account of PTCL privatisation.
Mushtaq Ghumman adds: Privatisation Commission does not deny the content of the BR story, which is based on the minutes of the federal cabinet.

  1. the dispute about ptcl land/property rights transfer to etisalat. it is blunder fraud in ptcl. the ptcl have thier property in trillions rupees. but our govt (zardari) wanted to gave them only in 10 arabs. the property of ptcl only in lahore and only one building of CTO OPPOSITE GPO is having grater value than 10 arabs. our free courts are sleeping on that blunder fraud and on the ptcl employees issues (terminations,dismissals,removal from service,show causes and charge sheets) with out any eligation.please wake-up and save the national assets of pakistan.

  2. They are simply waisting their time. Instead of conducting such meetings they shold decide whether the interest of the people Pakistan comes first or “Brotherly relation with UAE” is important.

  3. PTCL management is mafia belongs to geelanee.which will hand over stat property to Etisalat chief justice also did not took any notice about workers of PTCL.
