ISLAMABAD - Yet another blatant misuse of authority by accused Member Gas Mansoor Muzaffar has now grabbed the attention of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) when it has started deeply probing into the use of two vehicles of gas distributing companies SNGPL & SSGCL. Well-informed sources revealed that NAB has started probing into another form of misuse of authority by accused Member Gas (Ogra), which had cost worth Rs 3.5million as result to the over burdened gas consumers besides other hefty corruptions cases in which he is now-a-days facing deep investigations by the bureau. They told that accused had used vehicles of both gas-distributing companies during last two years. Estimated impact of the use of both vehicles was around Rs 3.5million. “Top Management of Sui southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) and Sui Northern Gas Company Limited in a bid to hide inefficiencies coupled with poor performance had used the accused Member Gas,” sources opined, adding, that this act of misuse of authority was against the vision and spirit of the regulator as well sever violation of the Ogra Ordinance.SSGCL had offered a vehicle with a Registration No ADT-803 Toyota Corolla, Model 2002, 1600cc, white colour for use of Mansoor Muzaffar Member Gas, Ogra, on July 13, 2010, with odometer reading of the subject vehicle on that day was 99,113kms. However, the said vehicle was returned to Islamabad office on April 4, 2012 with the odometer reading showing 150,497kms. The total kilometres used during this period was 51,384kms and the total petrol consumed was 5,647.5liters amounting to Rs 430,563.93. Similarly, SNGPL had also provided a car model Corolla XLI, Registration No.2576LW to the Member Gas (Ogra) from Oct 2010 to April 2011 along with a driver and fuel facility.  It is to be noted here that a NAB inquiry report, pertaining to corruption of Rs 80b, made available with The Nation also revealed various tales of corruption that Member Gas had cost the people of Pakistan additional burden as they have been and even are bearing the heavy brunt of skyrocketing increase in gas prices. According to the inquiry report, DPL got benefits with increased wellhead gas price, similarly illegal stay orders were issued against gas theft cases, CNG stations were relocated which had resulted in huge increase in line losses of both gas distributing companies SNGPL and SSGCL. It is worth mentioning that though NAB had arrested Member Gas from his office due to his alleged involvement in corruption of Rs 80 billion, yet the government, till the filing of this report, was found indecisive to send Member Finance and Member Gas (Ogra) on forced leave or to remove him from the respective slot in a regulatory authority. ‘So far neither government nor Cabinet Division (CD) given any direction to send him on force leave, sources said.
