EOBI terms MQM hurdle in rent recovery from shops
A top official at the Employees Old-age Benefit Institution (EOBI) on Tuesday told the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) that a nexus of nine private companies and local political workers with close links to the MQM had occupied shops at the EOBI Plaza, Karachi, without paying rent since 2001.
EOBI Director General Investment Wahid Khursheed expressed his inability to get the shops vacated due to interference and influence of the MQM and the matter had now reached the sector in-charge of the political party, who was a huge hurdle in the recovery of rent.
Everyone loves to hit at MQM. He should ask the area police to kick the occupants out and call them to courts. Why are police officers enable to initiate against the culprit. They should arrest peopel try to stop them from doing their work.
People who join police force know the risk associated with their jobs. If they fear then they should be fired and new people should be hired in their place. The problem in Karachi is that police officers from outside Karachi give big bribes to transfer themselves here to make money. They have found it easy to blame MQM to hide their ineffeciency.
