Islamabad: Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation gave a detailed briefing to Makhdoom Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat, Federal Minister for Housing and Works, regarding their completed schemes.
During the briefing session, the Minister for Housing and Works observed some serious irregularities in purchase of land from M/S Green Tree during the year 2009. He took a serious note on this issue and strictly directed the officers of the Foundation to mend their ways otherwise they will be treated with iron hand. The Minster nominated Senior Joint Secretary, Ministry of Housing and Works to conduct a thorough enquiry in the matter and submit the report within 10 days. The purchase of 3000 kanals of land by the body at much higher rates that the then prevailing rates raises serious questions in regards to procedures adopted and transparency issues.
As such in line with the Minister’s strict policy of zero tolerance regarding corruption, a detailed enquiry comprising all aspects of the deal need to be thoroughly examine by the Enquiry Committee.
