LAHORE: The Lahore Waste Management Company chief executive officer on Sunday dismissed six officials from service for corruption.

During surprise visit to various spots, LWMC chief Ali Annan Qamar also surrendered services of two zonal heads to the Metropolitan Corporation Lahore (MCL) besides issuing warning notices to four others.

According to a spokesman, the action was taken against the officials for committing corruption through ghost employees.

Those removed from service included Allama Iqbal Town’s supervisors Arsalan Yaqoob, Hafiz Rizwan, Chand Ali, Salman Ali and Muhammad Javed and Abdul Rauf, the town manager of Wagah Town.

Services of two supervisors and one zonal officer (Ashraf, Yaqoob, and Jahanzeb Bhatti) were surrendered to MCL. The responsibilities of the morning shift in Allama Iqbal Town were handed over to Shakeel Wahid, while four supervisors were issued a final warning to correct their attitude.

A final warning was issued to town manager Aziz Bhatti for poor performance and poor cleanliness, while a warning letter was also issued to Chaudhry Aslam, town manager of Gulberg, for neglecting duties and failing to improve performance despite repeated warnings.

“There is no space for corrupt mafia in LWMC and everyone will have to fulfil their responsibility to make Lahore clean,” he warned.
