We had anticipated restructuring in Pakistan Telecommunication Authority, at least to some extent, after departure of Mr. Malik from chairmanship. Thing have started happening so.
In a recent development, Brig (R) Mazhar Qayyum Butt, who was a very powerful resource, in fact he was DG Co-ordination in PTA at the times of Maj. Gen (R) Shahzada Alam Malik, has resigned from his position.
Brig (R) Mazhar Qayyum Butt also happened to be the PTA secretary – In the era of Mr. Alam Malik, Mazhar Qayyum was completely looking after the authority, as he was also DG Admin.
It merits mentioning here that after removal of Mr. Malik, Brig (R) Mazhar Qayyum was transferred from most powerful seat of DG Coordination to DG Technical.
We may see resignations of three other retired colonels as well in coming days.
PTA’s spokesman was not available for comment on this.
