Communist Party demand for amendments in PEC Act, 1976!

(ATTOCK – PR – June 10, 2015) “The Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) has badly failed to achieve all those objectives and aims as is enumerated in the PEC Act, 1976” says the Communist Party of Pakistan (CPP) Chairman Engineer Jameel Ahmad Malik in its press release issued here today.

“Till by now the Pakistan Engineering Council has created hatred among the diploma holders and engineers for a considerable long time and now is creating hatred and differences between the registered engineers and professional engineers whereas in engineering profession, there is no difference between the registered engineers and professional engineers” he emphasized.

During the regime of Pakistan People’s Party, the existing election laws of Pakistan Engineering Council prevailing long was purposely changed for making Engineer Syed Qadir Shah as the Chairman of the Pakistan Engineering Council. This was purposely done by PPP to pave way for Engineer Syed Qadir Shah, who is real younger brother of then PPP Federal Minister Syed Khurshid Shah.

Engineer Qadir Shah after becoming the Chairman of Pakistan Engineering Council has abnormally increased the annual registration fees of contractors and engineers and practically has done nothing for the benefits of contactors, engineers or for the engineering profession as a whole. During his tenure as Chairman of PEC, the engineering profession has declined further.

Since the enactment of PEC Act, 1976 and uptill the time of Chairman PEC Engineer Qadir Shah, the Pakistan Engineering Council has not punished any of the Engineers of Mega Projects registered with the PEC on the basis of corruption, nepotism and for taking commission on each and every bill of the contractors.

The CPP chairman demands from the Federal government to immediately repeal all those amendments in the PEC Act, 1976 made during the regime of PPP in election procedures of PEC only to benefit Engineer Qadir Shah.

He also requested Government to constitute a Judicial Commission, so as to suggest ways and means as how to stop and eradicate corruption and commission in the engineering based government departments. “This is call of day as Pakistan Engineering Council has badly failed to stop and eradicate corruption and come up to the goal set for it establishment,” he vehemently stressed.

Engineer Jameel also added that the PEC had fund to the tune of Rs.1 billion but it had never been spent on the welfare of the engineers, contractors or on the staff of PEC. The huge funds of PEC are always being spent on the lavish tours and expenditures of the office bearers of the council.
