    PTCL privatisation

    NA body concerned over Hafeez Shaikh’s absence

    By Ijaz Kakakhel

    ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly Standing Committee on Information Technology on Thursday expressed serious concerns over non-appearance of finance minister (FM), Abdul Hafeez Shaikh – who was scheduled to brief the committee over privatisation deal of the PTCL.

    MNA Chaudhry Muhammad Barjees Tahir chaired the meeting and informed the committee that the finance minister had faxed him and informed about his non-availability to attend the IT committee meeting because he had to attend some foreign delegate.

    The meeting was informed that previously about 3 to 4 meeting of the committee were postponed due to non-availability of the finance minister. He said the employees of the PTCL were on strike, they were put behind bars and uncertainty prevailed over the organisation. He said the government resources were wasted over payment in TA/DA to members of the committee and government officials.

    Citing example of the previous government, he said every one attended the committees meeting regularly. “We always claimed that parliament was supreme but regretted that a responsible minister is not interested to attend it,” he maintained.

    “I have the power to issue warrant against any one but it will disturb the whole democratic setup”, he warned and termed the fax sent by finance minister was nothing but a joke to the committee.

    The committee decided to send an official letter to the Prime Minister and Speaker National Assembly and informed them about non-appearance of finance minister in IT Committee for the last 3 to 4 meetings. If the government wanted to make the committees ineffective, then there was no need to call any further meeting of the committee particularly IT Committee. The chairman claimed that every one in the IT Committee was ready to resign if the government wanted to make the committee ineffective through non-appearance of a minister.

    The committee was informed that the PTCL workers demanded 50% raise in their salaries as announced by the government for other government servants.

    Moreover, the management of the PTCL wanted to extend 30% raise in protected employees and 20 percent on performance base. However, the employees seek 50 percent raise in their salaries across the board and that was why they went on strike. After privatisation of the PTCL, the board of directors has to decide about raise in their employees’ salaries. The BOD decided to extend 30% raise on basic pay and 20% on performance base.

    Miss Marvi Memon said why the PTCL management did not provide 50% raises to the protected employees and said it was their right to demand increase in salaries announced by the government. The committee accepted her proposals of 50% increase in PTCL protected employees with immediate affect without any negotiations.

    The committee was also informed that about a Rs 3.7 billion loss has been incurred to information technology infrastructure across the country, whereas a “fund” has been created for rehabilitation of telecom infrastructure.
