gas for power plant

LETTER (September 20 2008): With reference to the report "Gas supply for power plant: 'favoured project' approved by PPIB", the only surprising thing is that it has happened six months after the new government took over. You must remember that in this country, all crimes can be whitewashed and the biggest crooks can even get into parliament and hold top positions.

So it's only natural that whenever a dubious company is involved, our officials display extraordinary speed, particularly if they know that it is a favoured company, even though it doesn't have a website and its telephone is unanswered, or it is not registered with the SECP. Your reporter deserves full praise for unearthing this first of many such scams which will surface in future.
