KARCHI Aug 01,2021- Sindh High Court on Wednesday has issued notice to Secretary Ministry of Petroleum and MD Sui Southern Gas (SSGCL) in Sui Southern Gas employees case.
The counsel for 350 employees of SSGCL, Barrister Zamir Ghumro argued before the Sindh High Court bench headed by Justice Salahuddin Panhwar that employees have been relieved in violation of the judgement of Supreme Court.
The Supreme has directed that employees would be restored to their positions on the date of enforcement of the Sacked employees Act, 2010 which came into effect on 8th December, 2010. However, the petitioners have been reinstated in 2009 and were very much in service on 8th December, 2010.
The counsel said that Federal Govt and SSGCL have illegally relieved the employees in sheer violation of judgement of Supreme Court dated 17-8-2021. He said that the employees were neither reinstated under the Act of 2010 nor they derived any benefit under the Act, therefore dispensing with their services is violation of the judgement itself.
Barrister Zamir Ghumro said the Court has not even removed employees from their jobs who were reinstated under the Act rather withdrew only benefits under the Act. Court issued notices and fixed September 7, for hearing of the case.
