On receipt of number of complaints from public representatives as well as general public of corruption, Ministry of Science & Technology discreet enquiry / investigation was ordered specially against NTS, COMSATS & PSQCA.
Few facts are narrated below for record.
- NTS (corruption and money laundering)
- COMSATS CIIT (Mismanagement, corruption)
- PSQCA (Irregular appointment of Director General, performance was not evaluated as per directives of the Prime Minister)
The National press also published many issues in this regard. In these circumstances I made up my mind to eradicate the menance from my Ministry inspite of pressures over me.
Furthermore, it shocked me that a full fledged Minister was given the portfolio of my Ministry just to stop my struggle against corruption.
In these circumstances, I cannot continue to work, therefore, I tender my resignation from portfolio of Minister of State of Ministry of Science & Technology.
