ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has on Thursday said that the management of the Pakistan Steel Mills was responsible for its downfall.
Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed has ordered to dismiss all the officers and employees and said that “mills that have been closed don’t need a managing director or CEO. These offices are nothing but a burden on the national treasury”.
He also queried from the government if it had conducted any investigation against the management.
The Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar, Privatisation Minister Muhammad Mian Soomro, Industry and Production Minister Muhammad Hammad Azhar, and the secretaries of these departments have been summoned by the top court in the case.
However, the court has said that the mill would be shut down if the management failed to improve their performances.
