Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Gulzar Ahmed in PIA case hearing on Wednesday remarked that COVID-19 has entered in Pakistan via airports and border crossings.
“What the people sitting in state agencies did to tackle the virus challenge?, CJP Gulzar Ahmed posed question.
“No one is caring about it”, he said.
“Every evil deed is being committed at airports.
All agencies including the Customs and FIA have become mafias,” the top judge said in his remarks.
“These people are sitting at airports to disrespect general public.
Tell me one thing they have ever did in the public interest,” Justice Gulzar asked.
The apex court heared a plea against appointment of CEO PIA Air Marshal Arshad Malik.
The government in its reply termed the petition based on ‘dishonesty’.
It stated that the revenue of the national flag-carrier increased by 44 per cent during the tenure of Mr. Malik.
The government added that the line losses of the PIA also curtailed upto 75 per cent.
In the last hearing of the case on February 20, CJP Gulzar had asked CEO of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Arshad Malik to decide which position he wants to hold.
