PTI’s demand: NADRA refuses to replace its DG Published: April 25, 2015 PTI chief Imran addressing his supporters. PHOTO: AFP ISLAMABAD: Chairman National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has rejected PTI chairman’s demand to replace Director General (data) based on Imran’s lack of confidence in his critical role of verification of thumb impression in NA-122. A source in NADRA told The Express Tribune that Chairman Nadra Usman Yousuf Mobeen has turned down the demand of the chairman PTI to replace the DG (data) NADRA, on the ground that any officer cannot be removed or replaced without any solid reason or ample proof of allegations against him. Chairman NADRA in response to the letter of Imran Khan, wrote that NADRA is carrying out verification of election material for the NA-122 constituency under directions of Election Tribunal, Lahore. He said that NADRA understands that verification exercises performed under the direction of Election Tribunals are critical in nature thus it tries its best to ensure that Standard Operating Procedures are followed by all concerned individuals working on this project. “Mr Muzzafar Ali has been the DG of the National Data Warehouse since 2007. He has been involved in all election tribunal related verifications since General Elections 2013 and, with his team, he has produced 38 reports so far. Previously there have not been any objections regarding his role,” he noted. The NADRA chief further writes: “We have carefully examined your request and appreciate your concerns. We would like to request you to provide evidence or proofs so that we are able to take necessary action in this matter”.
