To understand why he was asked to leave, was it because of corruption or something else, we need to look at the facts and the context surrounding his departure in 2008.

who came in the power at that time Mr Zardari and team (completely honest and corruption eliminators??)

steel mill was running in deficit with 20% working capacity?

Why the MINISTER visited the PSM before CEO agreed to leave and Appointment of some1 who was even unable to leave his office without security

AND last of all 'he has been reappointed'

Lets first get our facts right and then slag people. we need to get out of the culture of research-less slagging and blaming.

and pray for the better fortunes and turnaround of the PMS.

Please consider tenures of three heads of Pakistan Steel Wherein the Organization went into Profit.These were the tenures of Col Afzal,Lt Gen Abdul Qayyum and Maj Gen Muhammad Javed HI(M),hence i suggest we should not discard an individul because he has been a General Officer.Armed Forces Personnel join the Ranks with pledge to lay down their lives for the Country,may it be Siachen,Swat ops North Waziristan,Eastern Border or Natural calamities Forces have always been sacrificing for the National Cause.Acts of few individuals should not be used to smear the whole organization.
