‘Dispelling chances of rigging’: Ministry seeks transfer of EXENs, SDOs of all Discos

LAHORE: In a major development, the Ministry of Energy (Power Division) on Saturday sought transfer of all executive engineers (EXENs) and sub-divisional officers (SDOs) out of the district from their present place of positing in all the distribution companies (Discos).

The reason for these directions, according to an official source, is to stop possibility of influence the EXENs and SDOs on the consumers to vote for certain political parties in the election.

“All chief executive officers are directed to prepare a posting/transfer plan for all EXENs and SDOs, in their respective Discos, out of their present district of posting, except those officers whose presence at the present posting is critically essential for which the CEOs will have to provide convincing technical justification,” reads a letter issued by the power division.
