Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Bazdar appeared before the Sugar Inquiry Commission.
A commission headed by Director General Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Wajid Zia to probe the recent sugar crisis in the country had summoned the Punjab Chief Minister today.
According to the details, Usman Bazdar reached the FIA headquarters to appear before the commission, where he recorded his statement before the commission.
Sources said that the commission headed by Wajid Zia inquired from Usman Bazdar.
According to sources, the Punjab Chief Minister apprised the commission of the background of the subsidy decision given to the sugar mills and also briefed the commission about the background of changes in the officers in the food department.
It may be recalled that the FIA investigation report had revealed that Jahangir Tareen, a key leader of the ruling party, had benefited the most from the sugar crisis in the country, followed by Khusro Bakhtiar’s brother and Mons Elahi’s companies benefited the most.
In this regard, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he was waiting for a detailed forensic audit by a high-level commission which would be conducted by April 25, but later the commission was given another three weeks to submit its report.
