LAHORE : Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar took suo moto notice over the alleged corruption to the tune of Rs 60 billion in Pakistan Railways.
According to “Pak News’ The court has summoned secretary Railways and board members along with audit reports in the next hearing.
During the hearing of the case on Saturday, CJP remarked that the officers must reveal the causes behind this fraud.
‘Why shouldn’t we call the Minister for Railways, Khawaja Saad Rafique in the Supreme Court’, he inquired.
Moreover, referring to Indian Railways Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, the top judge said that he was an uneducated man but he made railways profitable and his theory is being taught at Harward University as well.
“In our country, tall claims of railways profitability have only been made in rallies while the real situation is not as good as claimed by politicians. This is not a kingdom where one can take whatever he wishes,” the CJP remarked. (Pak News)
