ISLAMABAD - A report on much talked Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) quota scandal is likely to be submitted today (Tuesday) in National Assembly Standing Committee on Petroleum and Natural Resources to get its approval for further necessary action, it was reliably learnt on Monday.
Sources privy to the matter informed TheNation that a meeting of NA body has been summoned where a much-awaited report on LPG quota scandal is likely to be submitted by Berjees Tahir, head of a sub committee on petroleum and natural resources. They said the report is likely to disclose the illegal quota allotted to some 15 LPG companies and OGDCL had committed irregularities while assigning quotas, adding, that the matter of involvement of OGDCL officers is also likely to be referred to the NAB for further necessary action in this regard.
Sources further informed that around two and half years were spent on finding the relevant facts and preparing this report of heavy irregularities committed in the allotment of LPG quota. They said the LPG quotas were allotted to the said fifteen LPG companies in connivance with the government gurus.
Further, the names of Shaheed Benazir Bhuttoo and Jahanagir Badar are now omitted from the said report after the demands of the ruling PPP’s members of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Petroleum and Natural Resources, which were included in 2011.
