LAHORE - The Punjab government failed to take action proposed by a three-member commission against three senior officials who it said were responsible for the devastating floods of 2010, a TV channel reported on Tuesday.

The commission had proposed registration of a case against a secretary and two engineers and sending of references against them to the National Accountability Bureau.

But, instead of taking any action against the ‘accused officials’, the government promoted them to next grades.

The government also took no steps to implement the commission recommendations to prevent future floods.

The Punjab government had constituted a committee under the leadership of Sardar Zulfikar Khosa to review the report.

The channel quoted former law minister Rana Sanaullah as saying that the commission’s report was based on wrong facts.
