PAC directs inquiry into Nandipur project MD’s appointment

As the Nandipur power project keeps bleeding, causing Rs9 billion annual loss in 2016 alone, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) decided on Thursday to go after a blue-eyed ‘decorated’ officer of the Punjab government for failure to professionally run the troubled project.

Headed by Syed Khursheed Shah, PAC directed the Power Division secretary to hold an inquiry to determine who was behind the appointment of Muhammad Mehmood – a District Management Group officer – as managing director of Nandipur power project.
