PESHAWAR - Over 10 officials of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa in different cadres who benefited from National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) are likely to be sacked. The list of these officers who benefited under National Reconciliation Ordinance has been sent to the Establishment Division as per directives of the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, sources say. To avoid the axe these officials included in the National Reconciliation Ordinance beneficiary list from Khyber Pukhtunkhwa have started contacting different political parties and influential politicians. Sources said that these officers will be asked to resign voluntarily failing which, there is high possibility that they will be forced to resign. Recently all the provinces of the country were directed to submit lists of National Reconciliation Ordinance beneficiaries after which the provincial government has sent a list of about 10 such officials to the centre. It is to be mentioned here that the action against all such beneficiaries of National Reconciliation Ordinance is going to be taken equally across Pakistan as the SCP in its verdict on December 16, 2009 has termed the NRO as ab initio and asked the Government to open cases against the NRO beneficiaries.
