RAWALPINDI - At a time when poor employees of Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) have been waiting for their salaries for the last many months , Managing Director PTDC is enjoying his foreign tours after getting special grant from the Prime Minister’s Package.
The PTDC employees appealed to Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani to take pity on their miserable lives as they were even suffering for two times meal because of having no money in their pockets.
Well-placed sources in PTDC told TheNation on Monday that all the employees were waiting for the withdrawal of their salaries for the last many months and hardly supporting their family because of zero income and facing very hard time.
They said employees have given many applications to the higher authorities for the release of their salaries but the higher officials were not taking any serious notice.
Sources told that MD PTDC Mir Shah Jahan Khitran was using his authorities and awarding benefits to his blue-eyed employees and one of the examples was that a female employee was enjoying official vehicle though she was a daily wage employee.
“Department is using the union and welfare funds for the maintenance of their vehicle,” sources alleged.
A number of letters have been written to the MD PTDC by the employees about this
mismanagement but MD was turned a deaf ear towards the issue. A large number of PTDC employees appealed to authorities concerned to take serious notice and release their salaries immediately.
Despite several attempts made by this scribe, MD PTDC Mir Shah Jahan Kithran was not available for his comments on the issue.
