Pakistan News – High court of Islamabad rejected the verdict filed by Raja Ashraf about the road constructions contracts in his constituency.
The two-member bench ruled that the award of the contract was against the rules laid down by the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PEPRA).
The bench, headed by Justice Anwar Kasi and Justice Noor-ul-Haq Qureshi, was hearing the case in response to a petition filed by a construction company challenging the award of the contract to National Logistic Cell (NLC) for the construction of the Mandra-Chakwal and Sohawa-Chakwal roads – 64 and 70 km respectively – in Ashraf’s Gujjar Khan constituency NA-51.
The case was earlier also referred to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and the chief election commissioner.
During the hearing, Ashraf’s counsel, Wasim Sajjad, argued that the IHC had cancelled the contract for construction work of the two roads without even hearing Ashraf.
