Govt. not only heartless; now it is also headless

headlessThe Inland Revenue Dept. is now without a Head after its controversial Commissioner was removed following the insistence of the Trade Unions of the Dept.

The Govt. earlier, did not take any action to send the Commissioner on compulsory leave despite such a recommendation made by the Parliamentary public Accounts Committee which probed the VAT fraud.

A finance Ministry official stated that the Dept. is at a disastrous standstill following Commissioner’s exit while the Govt. has not taken steps to make a replacement though it is fully aware that it is an urgent necessity.

The Unions have sternly warned that they would strongly oppose if the President does not honour his promise to them that he would appoint a suitable officer from the Dept. and tries to appoint an outsider.
