ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmad remarked on Friday that the Lahore Transport Company Private Limited (LTCPL) is one among 56 companies formed by the Punjab government and no one will stay in these companies now as all these companies will stand abolished.

A three-member SC bench presided over by CJP Gulzar Ahmad took up for hearing an application filed by the Lahore Transport Company deputy general manager seeking his reinstatement. The counsel for petitioner told the court during the hearing that Muhammad Hanif was working as deputy manager in LTCPL, who was removed from service without rules as only one year of his service is left.

Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked that the post against which he was working was abolished. The petitioner can claim only financial losses. The petitioner became emotional over it. He said that his client had neither committed any corruption nor had he indulged in any theft. He has minor daughters.

The CJP remarked that the emotional talk is of no use here. The petitioner should seek some other job. All the people of these companies will go home now. No one among these 56 companies of Punjab will stay.

The court, while directing sub-committee of Lahore Transport Company to look into the case of Muhammad Hanif, again dismissed the petition of Muhammad Hanif in connection with his reinstatement and wrapped up the matter.
