PM suspends PSO Deputy MD over petrol crisis

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Tuesday ordered suspension of Pakistan State Oil Pakistan (PSO) Deputy Managing Director (DMD) Finance Sohail Butt after an inquiry committee held him and Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) responsible for prevailing petrol crisis.

The committee submitted its preliminary report to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a meeting held to review situation that emerged following petrol shortage.

The initial report blamed OGRA for petrol shortage, saying the ongoing crisis was a “serious failure on the part of OGRA”.

It contended that PSO Deputy MD is ‘equally responsible’ for the crisis.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister directed for making structural changes to ensure that such a situation never arises again.

The meeting also endorsed PM earlier decision of suspending four top officials for failing to deal with a major petrol crisis that led to black marketing of the fuel.

The suspended officials included Petroleum Secretary Abid Saeed, his deputy Naeem Malik, Oil Director General CM Azam and Pakistan State Oil chief Amjad Janjua. -Samaa
