(Pak Destiny) After receiving disqualification from the Lahore High Court former chairman of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) Absar Alam rushed to meet his master Nawaz Sharif today in Islamabad and told him that he was too thrown out like him -“mujhey kun nikala”.
Absar, just a BA, clung to the priced posting bagging Rs3.3million per month salary plus other perks for the years he remained posted in return to licking the boot of the Sharif family during his stint as journalists.
The LHC yesterday declared Alam’s appointment as Pemra chairman to be illegal. In the petition, Ahmad had said that Alam had been drawing Rs1.5 million salary a month whereas the post of Pemra’s chairman was equal to the MP-I (Management Position) scale. He had informed the court that the maximum salary for MP-I scale is Rs450,000.
Alam’s case was an “open nepotism and a violation of merit on part of the PML-N government,” the petitioner said, adding was the case to prove how the Sharif family awards its touts be it Absar Alam in Pemra or Muhammad Malick and Attaul Haq Qasim in PTV.
Since Absar Alam has reduced himself nothing but a down right tout of the Sharif family he met his master and requested him to ask PM Abbasi to give him some other post so that he could make some more bucks before the PML-N completes its term. Is not its shameful… Mr Absar, raise some ego. – Pak Destiny
