CM to give audience to sacked BoK officers

Peshawar

June 13, 2019

PESHAWAR: Chief Minister Mahmood Khan is likely to give audience to five officers of the Bank of Khyber (BoK), who were sacked during the previous provincial government.

The dismissed employees included Haider Ali, Association president (officer grade-1), Farmanullah Khan, general secretary, Assistant Vice-President (AVP), Haroon Minhaj, AVP, Amanullah, joint secretary (AVP) and Ayaz Ahmad, VP. Their services were terminated for what was alleged as “subversive activities”. It is noteworthy here that the sacked officers were members of the officers association of the bank. A cabinet committee led by the then senior minister Sikandar Sherpao and a parliamentary committee led by the then chief minister Pervez Khattak had been constituted to fix responsibility in the matter. The cabinet, as well as the parliamentary committee, had submitted reports whereby these bodies called for the reinstatement of the sacked employees also, but their recommendations have not yet been implemented. However, a Civil Secretariat source told The News that the chief minister had now consented to give audience to the sacked officers. The terminated officers had appealed to the chief minister and Finance Minister Taimoor Saleem Jhagra to look into their removal from the service after they served the bank for years.
