Trade: (Businessman Panel restructured for upcoming FPCCI elections)


ISLAMABAD: The Businessman Panel of the FPCCI has been restructured to oppose United Business Group (UBG) in the upcoming elections of the Apex Chamber.

Likewise former president FPCCI Ghulam Ali has been elected as Chairman Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, former vice president FPCCI Naveed Jan Baloch has been elected as chairman Balochistan while Anjum Nisar, the third largest taxpayer of country has been elected as Chairman Punjab.

Majority of the leaders of Businessman Panel wants Senator Haji Ghulam Ali to run for the slot of president FPCCI against UBG’s candidate Abdul Rauf Alam, said Central leader of the Businessman Panel and former vice president FPCCI Khurram Sayeed.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, he said that UBG has violated law and democracy by nominating Abdul Rauf Alam as candidate for the slot of president FPCCI for the year 2016.

He said that the decision is worst example of dictatorship as no meeting was summoned, UBG’s core committee was kept in dark while no one was allowed to run for the slot.

Khurram Sayeed said that Mr. Alam has never been to a high school, he lacks leadership and administrative skills and all he got is experience of working at Alam Tailors. Islamabad for decades.

He will make FPCCI and Pakistan a laughing stock while meeting top officials, foreign dignitaries and businessmen of other countries.
