ATTOCK

Local transporters have levelled serious allegations against the Personal Assistant to the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) Secretary and have demanded disciplinary action against him. The transporters in their written complaint submitted to the Attock DCO have alleged that the PA to the RTA Secretary has been involved in different departmental irregularities which include taking bribe from transporters on the one or the other pretext. They claimed that the PA had recruited a few blue-eyed boys illegally on daily-wage basis. They regretted that the PA, who resides in Rawalpindi, comes to his office at almost at 11 O'clock on daily basis, keeping the transporters on waiting for him. They have alleged that the PA to the secretary seems to have been the final authority in the office they have never seen the RTA Secretary sitting in his office which the reason behind the PA's taking advantage of the situation. They have pointed out that a few years back, the PA was arrested by NAB on charge of different irregularities. The transporters have demanded that the presence of Secretary RTA be ensured in the office and complete audit of this office be carried out to unearth the alleged irregularities.
