Badin, January 07, 2013 (PPI-OT): The Speaker National Assembly, Dr. Fehmida Mirza has taken notice of the gross irregularities, committed in the tendering and execution of the ongoing Left Bank Outflow Drainage project in Badin. She ordered an inquiry into the scandal and asked the Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah to suspend the Project Director, Sardar Shah.
Dr. Mirza, who is currently touring her constituency, was informed by the locals about the negligence in this important project. They alleged that the Project Director Sardar Shah was personally involved in the poor and sub-standard work quality and the massive corruption in this project.
It was also brought to her notice that the project had been hastily tendered without following the legal formalities, as to accommodate favorite contractor.
